Karen B. from Charleston SC
My old friend Karen B. visits me in Chicago and we talk about what it's like being a woman driver in a smaller, southern market while riding around Chicago's Lakeview neighborhood. In Part 2 on the way to the airport, we talk about the wonders of delivery and why drivers lie to their passengers.
