A recent episode about Pulp Fiction from the Wisconsin-based show "To The Best Of Our Knowledge" has two great Chicago stories to share: a brief interview with Studs Terkel discussing Nelson Algren, along with a longer interview with Chris Ware about the history of comics. (Real Audio to listen, though they have a podcast too.)
