Lori Lightfoot says "Bye Bye" to the Chicago Bears?
When the news broke that the owners of the Chicago Bears football team purchased a massive piece of property in a suburb 30 miles outside of Downtown Chicago, the narrative quickly developed that The Bears could be leaving their historic stadium for the suburbs.

In this episode, our friend Stephen Moore joins us for a fun discussion on the other factors that could be lending to the Bears organization considering leaving their historic home in Downtown Chicago, and the policy consequences that come with it.
