Building: A Habitat Home And A LEGO Skyscraper

On the 21st: We spoke with three Illinois religious leaders who are part of an interfaith effort to build a Habitat for Humanity house. Plus, we met the artist behind the LEGO exhibit at Chicago’s Museum of Science and Industry and learned about the effect toys can have on children's perceptions of their own abilities.

‘Look At You Now,’ A Memoir; Millennium Park Protest; Pokémon Go Goes To College (And Everywhere)

In 1979, Liz Pryor lived in a wealthy Chicago suburb when she found she was pregnant. Her parents decided to keep this a secret forever. Now she's telling her story in a new memoir, which we discussed with the author. Also, we spoke with Sophia Byrd, one of the four teenage women who organized yesterday's Black Lives Matter protest of more than 200 people at Millennium Park. Finally, Pokémon Go — it's a phenomenon everywhere. We heard from people playing it on college campuses, as well as from Jennifer Golbeck, Director of the Social Intelligence Lab at the University of Maryland.
