In this Chewing food and health podcast episode co-hosts Louisa Chu and Monica Eng go South Side, to the southside of Chicago. Monica goes on eat-alongs with  author of "The South Side: A Portrait of Chicago and American Segregation" / WBEZ reporter Natalie Moore, and then with tech entrepreneur Paul Lee. Plus Louisa investigates the Big Baby, the South Side double cheeseburger, what should be the Chicago-style burger. Plus for a very special first season finale both Monica and Louisa bring South Side food to taste for the other, one which dangerously migrated from the very far South, but Will She Eat It?
