Featured in this Show

  • The health consequences of Wisconsin's drinking culture

    Alcohol-related deaths in Wisconsin nearly tripled from 1999 to 2020. The state has among the highest rates of alcohol consumption in the nation — and among the lowest perceptions of binge-drinking as risky behavior. We talk to an expert about Wisconsin’s drinking problem, and evidence-based polices to address it.

  • A new documentary sheds light on endometriosis

    Endometriosis is an often painful disease that affects an estimated 10 percent of women and girls of reproductive age globally. But despite being relatively common, it takes endometriosis patients an average of ten years to get a diagnosis—and even longer to find treatment options that work. A filmmaker shares what went into making a new documentary about endometriosis, and a medical specialist answers questions about finding endometriosis care in Wisconsin.
