Each month, the Barber Shop Show features local journalists, bloggers and media personalities to get their take on the news of the month. For June’s Mid-Month Mash Up, the guests were Yolanda Perdomo, a host and producer with WBEZ; Jen Sabella, senior Chicago editor at DNAinfo Chicago; and myself representing The Chicago Reporter.
The conversation touched on everything from the Illinois House’s failure to take a vote on gay marriage to recent revelations that the National Security Agency has been collecting the cellphone data of Verizon customers and tapping into the servers of companies, including Facebook, Apple and Google.
