On the 21st: We discussed Illinois' school funding bill with two of its chief sponsors: Republican State Sen. Jason Barickman and Democratic State Sen. Kimberly Lightford. Plus, we spoke to the editor-in-chief of the online literary journal Jaggery and talked to two University of Illinois researchers about what their work studying baby pigs means for our understanding of the human microbiome.
