SEASON TWO COMING AT YOU

Revolution and Beer returns to Chicago cable channel 19. It all starts Tuesday, October 1st, at 7:30 p.m. for all the 9-5ers, and at 2:30 p.m. Wed. for the over-stressed/underemployed homeworkers. Cheers!

The second season is full of friends and new places around town. We’ve got quite a few more two-part series for this season because we’re hitting some fascinating topics and felt they warranted it.

Starting-off the season will be Episode 11 on Oct. 1. On this episode, we sat down for a drink at Maria’s Packaged Goods in Bridgeport. We were joined by Dennis Kelleher, Co-op Consultant and Executive Director of Center for Workplace Democracy; as well as Ricky Maclin and Armando Robles Worker-Owners of New Era Windows (formerly Republic Windows and Doors).

Find more details here on our website and our facebook page in the coming weeks, and look for re-runs of the show on CAN TV in September.
