Observations with Chandra have shown that radio sources and the dense ICM in the cores of clusters of galaxies can have a profound effect on one another. In many cases, cavities or ``bubbles'' are created in the X-ray gas, and the central radio sources often reveal distorted morphologies. We present Chandra observations of the galaxy cluster Abell 2029 which contains a dense X-ray core and a central steep-spectrum radio source. The central regions of the cluster reveal complex X-ray structures. We discuss the connection between the X-ray substructure and the central radio source (PKS 1508+059).
