So glad to be from IL I was listening to WGN radio [View all]

it's politically moderate. The radio personalities all seem to hate trump . But, they are not liberal. They often interview republicans.

Lisa Dent from WGN was interviewing state representative Margaret Croke discussed a bill about splitting the cost of pregnancy between both parents.


Lisa asked Ms Croke why the bill is worded "the pregnant party" instead of "the woman who is pregnant". Representative Croke stated something like "because we don't know how the pregnant person refers to themselves''. Lisa Dent totally got it and said '' I appreciate that''.

It was just a really nice interaction.

Here is the segment from WGN
