Portable Cassette Tape Recorder Recommendations

I need to buy a tape recorder to do interviews with people in punk bands. I'd love if it was also loud enough at playback to function as an extremely crummy tape player so I can transcribe the tapes without headphones or listen to cassettes in my room (this
magically started working again, but it's only hooked up in my living room).

so, I started a music blog (link in profile), and my friend is all like "I can get you into this sold out show and you can interview (lead singer) of (actually kind of famous band)" and I'd like to not look like an idiot and actually get a good interview, so I need a tape recorder.
- durable; it's going to be in my messenger bag when I bike around
- built in speakers that go as loud as possible so I can listen to Mean Jeans while drinking in the park or whatever
- if I could connect it via headphone jack to my existing cassette deck to dub mixtapes for people
- available with free two-day shipping through Amazon prime
Before you tell me to "just check Goodwill!" please keep in mind that I live in Chicago and our thrift stores are way more picked over than wherever you're from.
