Snap Judgment goes commando

Chicago Public Radio WBEZ already stands out for team spirit. With its "Afternoon Shift" pitted against NPR's "Wait Wait...don't tell me," WBEZ produced an entertaining video in hopes of winning the epic battle.

WBEZ gets real

Does it illustrate the serious dedication of the "Afternoon Shift?" We say: most definitely.

Meanwhile, in the Upper Northeast bracket, Brian Lehrer of WNYC's "Brian Lehrer Show" has something to say to Kurt Anderson from PRI's "Studio 360."

Brian Lehrer has a call to action

Anderson is kind yet aggressive in his response. As of Friday morning, his show was winning with about 76 percent of the vote.

Kurt won't step down

In the Lower Northeast bracket, WUNC's "The State of Things" is hoping folks will see its show as public radio's very own Cinderella story.

State of Things gets creative

As of now, "The State of Things" is falling behind to NPR's "Weekend Edition Saturday" with only 18 percent of the vote. Will Frank Stasio get his clicks before the clock strikes 6 on Sunday night? Only time will tell.

Who do you think should win our public radio bracket? Round two closes at 6 p.m. Sunday. Vote here. And join in the battle on Twitter with the hashtag #KPCCmadness
