These are the sound-rich projects from the fall 2015 COLUMBIA COLLEGE CHICAGO class... Podcasting Chicago: Capturing the Sounds of Chicago's Neighborhoods.

Seventy students, four neighborhoods, weeks of research, weeks of interviews, weeks of visits, and at the end of it all, a rich and deep understanding of a city neighborhood.

Lakeview: Sports, Parties, and Acceptance

Ukrainian Village: An Immigrant's Town

Uptown: Funk You Up

Chinatown: A Cultural Hub

Enjoy the "Sounds of Chicago's Neighborhoods."

  6. Some people are salty about their neighborhoods being less cultured than Lakeview. They are of course wrong. Go Cubs.

  15. Fun fact: Shake, Rattle, and Read from Uptown's podcast is now closing down. I guess not really a "fun" fact. The Uptown group was one of the last projects to document the store! All the other podcasts are great as well by the way.
