What do you do for Vocalo Radio?

I am the host of the host of Jill Afternoons, every weekday from 1pm-5pm. We make radio that ties together art and culture, activism and social justice, news and education, into four hours of fun that sounds like Chicago.

What’s the best part of your job?

Meeting, learning from, and getting to know some of the most interesting people in Chicago and from around the world. The opportunity to share music with our listeners, and shine a spotlight on amazing people doing amazing things is great, too. And there’s donuts on Fridays.

What do you love about Chicago?​

That it loves me back.
