Season One of Making told the story of how Oprah built a media empire. Now, the story of how Chicago shaped the country's first African-American president.

Subscribed without hesitation

This is the kind of podcast that keeps me smiling nonstop at work. Thank you for this!


I look forward to this every week. The latest episode on the groundwork for his 2004 Senate run contained lots of bits and trivia I never knew and found fascinating. Thank you WBEZ Chicago! Bravo.

Truly absorbing story topics & delivery

Both the Oprah & Obama stories are excellent storytelling - Jenn White is a great interviewer who lets the people who lived the events describe them; the podcast team supports the narrative with great sound and supplemental info. The podcast makes me feel like I’m behind the scenes, learning about foundational events in recent history. I highly recommend this and hope the series continues with additional story topics.
