This month, we learn the history of Confidential magazine-the 1950's scandal magazine who's mission was to "tell the facts and name the names." We also talk with Chicago Tribune columnist Maureen Ryan about the end of the television series "Lost" and how TV watching has changed in the 21st century. And we hear about a man who ran the Boston Marathon barefoot. We'll have those stories and more, this time on Sidetrack!
