Podcast: August 9, 2014

This week we feature a “Best of Skinny & Houli Show” which includes interviews with Sheila McShane, the mother of Irish J-1 student Natasha McShane who was attacked and permanently disabled 4 years ago in Bucktown. This interview was done the night before the convicted assailant was sentenced to 90 years in prison. Then we revisit our interview with Peg Ogarek of the Cook County States Attorney’s Office, who co-prosecuted the case with her partner John Maher. Lots of great insight and behind the scenes info on this tragic incident in Irish-American history.

Don’t miss this one!
