This hour we're live at the Hideout in Chicago with stories of pairs who are complete opposites, but utterly entwined.

The Sitter Dispatch by Maya Goldberg-Safir & Dennis Funk ( Re:sound debut, 2015) Straight out of college, Maya was living in her cousins' attic and working a part-time, unpaid internship. Then she took a job as a nanny that turned out to be nothing like she'd expected.

Gamun-Pyul by Rayon Wright ( Radio Rookies , WNYC 2010) Rayon Wright was born in Jamaica and raised in Brooklyn. Though he grew up surrounded with Jamaican culture and music, he wants more than anything to producer Korean music (or K-Pop). A lot of non-Asian teenagers like Hello Kitty or Japanese Anime, but Rayon's love for Asian culture goes far beyond that.

Grote's Notes by Gwen Macsai & Dennis Funk ( Re:sound debut, 2016) Re:sound host Gwen Macsai tells the story of her unlikely friendship with a bank robber. Write Dan Grote: Dan Grote #22670-424 USP Canaan U.S. Penitientiary P.O. Box 300 Waymart, PA 18472
