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

This episode looks at an ongoing dispute between the Graduate Employee Organization and the University administration. We talked to our news reporter Heather Schlitz, who has written several stories about the bargaining between the two sides. We also visit look at how two democratic gubernatorial candidates are bringing their campaign to Champaign-Urbana. Thanks to Heather and Chris Jo for their work on their stories this week. Also thanks to Rachael Sims, Sullivan Peterson-Quinn and Daniel Bliss for talking to me at Murphy’s Bar during the Bliss event.
