The Region Review


This podcast was created on 2/19 for the sole purpose to bring you news from the Region. Three life-long Region Rats bring you the stories from the south shores of Lake Michigan to the cornfields around Route 2, from the Sunday liquor-selling border of Illinois to the deadly expressway of 65...and beyond.
