  1. To follow up on this post, I went to the Nov 12 taping with my 12 year old niece. I thought she'd be the youngest there, but there was an 8 and 10 year old there too. The taping went a little long, but my niece was more patient than I. She's in broadcast club at her school and was looking forward to seeing the studio. I knew there were more learning moments than that to be had and they came. It was gratifying to hear her say she aimed to go straight home and write about what she's learned. As for me, I'm scheduling some doctors appointments long put off.

    With two more tapings coming up, consider going. Seeing a show live rather than just on TV is more impactful. All the seat were good ones. Paula Zahn and the crew at WTTW were gracious and often funny.

    This series is set to air sometime in the third week of January.
