In this episode I reflect on my many years coming to Chicago and how much this city has meant to me personally. From my years of partying in late night blues joints to the healthy living of briskly walking along Lake Michigan every morning of today.

I talk about Chicago Fun facts, John Fox, Bernie Mac, Muddy Waters, Willie Dixon, Howlin' Wolf, Zanies and my magnificent love story with Ashna that began with our first trip together to Chicago. In this episode I talk about why Bill Murray is my Buddha and the most perfect moment I have ever experienced in Chicago.
