Boeing In Crisis; Transgender Speech Clinic; Contacting Local Government Officials; Mendota Teachers Strike Update

Boeing is still dealing with the fallout from the 737 Max 8, which crashed twice before being grounded earlier this year. We talk about what’s next for the Chicago-based company. Plus, speech language pathologists in Central Illinois are helping transgender clients by providing techniques that focus on the resonance, tone and projection of their voices.
