Chicago Ideas is a movement built on one core belief: When a broad spectrum of thinkers and instigators share ideas, we have the power to transform our world. Since 2011, we’ve hosted Chicago Ideas Week, which is the world's largest affordable ideas festival, bringing the leading minds of our time to stages across Chicago. In this podcast, we’re bringing you the audio from some of these talks and conversations, giving you a front-row seat to some the most inspiring ideas the world has to offer.
