Nov. 24, 2014 show

Dr. Miguel Diaz of Loyola University joins Bob to talk about President Obama's executive action regarding immigration. Dr. Diaz is The John Courtney Murray University Chair in Public Service at Loyola and former U.S. Ambassador to the Holy See, serving from 2009-2012. Next up, Randi Belisomo, a reporter for WGN-TV and CLTV, joins Bob to talk about the importance of having those key discussions with family members about end-of-life decisions. The Catholic Conference is currently updating its statewide advance directive materials, and Randi brings a unique perspective to the issue. She and Dr. Mary Mulcahy founded Life Matters Media more than a year ago as a way to honor her late husband, Chicago journalist Carlos Hernandez Gomez who died in 2010. His battle with colon cancer emphasized the importance of discussing end-of-life care with family members. To wrap up the show, CCI's own Zach Wichmann discusses the first week of the legislature's fall veto session, and what's in store for the second week Dec. 2-4.
