Disappearing Money

Produced by
Anita Woodley

Disappearing Money

Jonathan David created a lucrative career for himself shooting prime-time TV commercials for companies like Pepsi and Adidas. He grew up poor and his father instilled a mantra in him to work hard for a better future. Jonathan says that's what he did, and then some. But when he got divorce and the recession followed, Jonathan found himself paying out more than he made.  He talks to Dick Gordon about how he's reevaluating his relationship with money.

Personal Politics

We’re just a couple of weeks away from the mid-term elections. There’s been a lot of  talk about who’s turning out for the early voting … who’s paying for all those ads and who’s due for an upset.  It’s a time when we prefer to turn the reigns over to you - with our series “Personal Politics.” Today - a few listeners call in with their stories. And Dick Gordon talks with George Mendelson about his mother’s story of meeting Richard J. Daley - a story she told him with unusual lucidity while she was suffering from Alzheimer’s.
