On this week’s Barber Shop Show, host Richard Steele was joined by
journalist Whet Moser. He talked about his recent Chicago Magazine article that sets up the connection between health, economics, and crime in communities.
Then we heard from with Eboni Hawkins and Michael Johnson of Red, Bike, and Green (a black cycling organization). Eboni is also involved with Fultonia (a series of events dedicated to the legacy of Dr. Alvenia Fulton, a natural health care and nutrition pioneer in Englewood).
Plus, from “I Grow Chicago”, we’ll be joined by Robbin Carroll, Co-Founder and President of I Grow Chicago. I Grow Chicago spearheads an urban agriculture program, as well as outdoor yoga sessions in Englewood. We also talked to a yoga participant.
Lastly, we talked to Linsey Robinson, a 5th grade teacher whose class wrote an editorial to the Tribune in defense of their South Shore neighborhood. We also heard from two of her students, Damiontaye and Rondayle.
The Barber Shop Show airs on Fridays and Saturdays at Noon on 90.7FM and 89.5FM. You can also stream live at vocalo.org. The show also broadcasts on Sundays at 3pm on WBEZ.
MYCELIUM: Thanks to fascinating new developments in time lapse photography, we were able to secure visual evidence of the distribution of “The Other Side of the Lane” improving a life. Passers by also testified to evidence of a glowing orb appearing above the head of the receiver. Her Hood and surrounding Hoods were also beneficiaries of the light.

EARTH ALCHEMY: Our current situation. Beware loose zukes. I’m touching hands when I see you. Fresh basil and parsley for coming up jolly. Turnip greens just sit around in the cut until they are called. Tiny chili will punch like you would but believe. Hungarian pepper is acting like it wants to kick through the overhanging collard and get this life. Tomatoes just about ready for plucking.

FOR LOVE OR MOMMY: Mama got jokes. She is wishes to condemn me to a life of sockless slip-ons, pulling quarters from children’s ears and chasing after Aspercreme in white linen shorts at the local Walgreens until I finally relent and retreat to the solace of Alabama like my mama and her mama before her. Yeah. Dastardly scheme I tell you. These shoes are moderately comfortable though. But if you catch me at the store in this pair, send me home. I must be confused.

"I don’t think that’s the way to the playlot. Are you sure you were looking up the right address? Let’s just GPS it before the Sun goes down."
KITCHEN ALCHEMY: Because sometimes the stew pot takes too long and were he to place the prep work before himself on those nights, he might retreat to bed dining on pistachios alone. Therefore a pan roast of gold and red spuds, carrots, onions, okra and garlic coated in olive oil and shook about with a little celery seed and Cajun seasoning will have to do just fine. Maybe he’ll try that Dutch oven brown rice they mentioned on the test kitchen.
