The Weekly Illini is your news podcast to keep up with the University of Illinois’ biggest stories.

This episode takes a look at the job of Duane Northrup, the Champaign County Coroner. From autopsies to notifying a family about a death, Northrup talks about his career and how it has affected him. We also look at how a decreased budget affects Champaign Police’s bar checks and how those are conducted. And then lastly, we look at a new literature class focused around the Harry Potter series.
