New Yorkers keep company with their thoughts as they make their way through the city's streets. But what are they thinking? A project called "New York Stories: The Lives of Other Citizens" attempts to map those inner thoughts of ordinary people. Andrew Irving, Anthropology Professor at the University of Manchester simply approached strangers on the street and asked them if they would wear a small microphone and narrate their thoughts as they walked through the city.

Some call it the Emerald Empire, others Rain City, but Takeaway listeners at KUOW Seattle call it home. Host John Hockenberry has been visiting Seattle this week, and had the opportunity to speak with Mayor Mike McGinn to talk about the narrative of the city — from the changes in the broad-based economy to managing accusations of racial profiling by the police force, and how the city incorporates accessible design with community building.

In 2010, 66 children died of gunfire in Chicago, and hundreds more were injured. Staggering statistics like this show that gang violence in the Windy City has grown out of control. CeaseFire, a community organization with a public-health approach, tries to lead Chicago's youth away from a life of crime. To do that, the group employs "interrupters," former gang members who actually go to the scene of a conflict and try to resolve it in a non-violent way. And it's all chronicled in a recent documentary film called "The Interrupters."
