Podcast: June 7, 2014

Navy Pier’s Marilynn Gardner and Jen Kramer, CEO and Director of Entertainment respectively, give us the rundown on all the summer happenings at the Pier. Navy Pier hosts over nine million visitors each year, more than all of Chicago’s professional sports teams and museums combined!

The gals invite Skinny & Houli to record a future show from the Ferris Wheel and then break the story of the return of “Venetian Night” to the Pier this coming September. Marilyn and Jen go over the history of the Pier and promote the 100th anniversary coming up in 2016.

Throw in some silly “Who Cares?” and big plugs for Houli’s book for Fathers Day and you have one helluva show! Tune in for the fun.
