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

This episode looks at a $25 million research project into war technology, and how our University is teaming up with the army for that one. We also look at a new resolution passed by the Illinois Student Government relating to the DACA phaseout. And then we look at how the formerly Alpha Chi Rho fraternity house is now available for rent as an Airbnb.

Thanks to Samantha, Cori and Isabella for their help this week.
