Out of WBEZ Chicago comes a new podcast that explores the backstory of former Democrat Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich who was arrested on corruption charges in December 2008, removed from office a month later, convicted on more than dozen felony counts, and sentenced to fourteen years in prison. WBEZ political reporter Dave McKinney goes through the entire dramatic saga (including the time period between his arrest and trial when he almost starred on the show I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! and actually starred on Celebrity Apprentice, where he was fired by Donald Trump).
