The podcast about Lakeview, by Lakeviewians, for all of Chicago.
Welcome to “Hello, Lakeview!” You might be wondering just what the heck is this Lakeview place. Well, Chicago is a city of neighborhoods—200 by some counts, though City Hall says it’s between 70 and 80. Lakeview is the one bordered by Lake Michigan to the east, Ravenswood Avenue to the west, Diversey Parkway to the south, and Irving Park Road to the north. Essentially, it’s the one with Wrigley Field in it.
Katie and Byrrd, your hosts of this podcast, believe the Lakeview neighborhood is the best of the bunch. Their goal is to show you why they think it’s great, taking you through what makes this such a cool, weird, fun, and delightfully precarious place to visit or, even better, call your home.
The podcasts don’t have a set chronology to them. Feel free to start with whatever episode floats your fancy or tickles your boat.
