Jay's Chicago

From people who love ice fishing or are dedicated to improving the lives of neighborhood kids, Jay Shefsky tells some of Chicago’s best stories.

You’ll meet a beehive rescuer, the Zamboni driver at Maggie Daley Park’s Ice Skating Ribbon, a woman who wallpapered her home with broken glass, a family who raises goats, a teen YouTube sensation, an owl photographer, an ex-convict turned yoga teacher, and a man who reconstructed a working model of Abraham Lincoln’s funeral train.
