John Conroy

As Director of Investigations at DePaul University’s Legal Clinic, John Conroy is doing the sort of life-saving work he did as a reporter. John became a journalism legend for his dogged coverage of Jon Burge and the city’s police torture scandal, amongst other stories.

In this week’s episode, John recalls his early years covering Chinatown’s underbelly, the time a south side politician threatened to throw him down the stairs, what it was like to live in Belfast’s war zone (where he was held at gunpoint), interviewing Bob Hope as a college student and much much more! This week’s podcast is a personal favorite.
