    This episode's in-studio guest is Marcus Lumpkin, a Library Associate at the Chicago Public Library and an avid Cyclist. Of course, books and cycles both have been accused of veering towards being obsolete, but Marcus believes both of his passions serve a vital role in Society.

    He talks about how his upbringing in Detroit shaped who he became as a man and why he believes both Biking and our Public Libraries are Great Equalizers in terms of Issues of Class.

    Also featured is music from the Jackson 5, Jerry Butler, Gregory Isaacs and more. Plus, we hear a 1966 rap by Lou Rawls about a wannabe hustler doing his thing at what is now 47th and King Drive in Chicago, and an excerpt from a 1969 audio documentary on Race.
