The Daily Illini

Weekly Illini Podcast | Feb. 19, 2018

By Aaron Navarro, Audio Editor & Assistant News Editor

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

This episode looks at a practice picket during the ongoing dispute between the Graduate Employee Organization and the University administration. We talked to GEO member Ben DeVries about his personal reason (his wife) for picketing in the upcoming Feb. 26 protest. We also look at other college publications across Illinois, and what the biggest news of the past year was for them. Thanks to Ben, Bruce, Robin and everyone at ICPA for talking to me for this episode.

Intro and outro song is “The Exchange” by The Juju Exchange.
