On the program this month, we talk to a U of I professor who's spearheading an effort to preserve the "virtual words" of old video games. We hear about a performance troupe who dress up like shrubbery, yes shrubbery, to create truly unique impromptu performancea. And we learn about the two-fisted liquor known as Malort and a group of Chicagoans who are obsessed with it. We'll have those stories and more, this time on Sidetrack!
