    WBEZ Reporter Michael Puente joins us to discuss Chicago’s repeal of its sugary drink tax, and what that might mean for Philadelphia’s tax.  Javier Flores, who spent a year taking sanctuary in a Philadelphia church, is now free with a path to legal status.  We hear from a Princeton Professor who just won the MacArthur “genius grant.”  Joe Hernandez checks in with New Jersey residents he’s been following through this year’s governor’s race to see if either candidate has sparked interest with the group.  And as Philadelphia bids on Amazon’s second headquarters, we look at just what the first headquarters has done for the city of Seattle.
