  1. Harper High School, Part Two | This American Life

    We pick up where we left off last week in our second hour of stories from Harper High School in Chicago. We find out if a shooting in the neighborhood will derail the school’s Homecoming game and dance. We hear the origin story of one of Harper’s more prominent gangs. And we ask a group of teenage boys: where do you get your guns?
