A Milwaukee Brewers broadcaster joins us to examine how the team fell short of the playoffs this year. Then, we talk to a Wisconsin physics professor about this year’s Nobel Prize award. Next, we talk to the head of Plymouth-based Sargento Foods as part of our Wisconsin CEO series. Later, an environmental studies professor joins us for an update on Wisconsin’s wolf population after the latest controversial hunt.

Featured in this Show

  • How the Brewers missed the playoffs for the first time since 2017

    The Milwaukee Brewers were officially eliminated from playoff contention this week. We look back on how they declined over the second half of the season and where it leaves the franchise moving forward.

  • Wisconsin researcher finding practical applications for the latest in quantum physics

    The 2022 Nobel Prize in physics was awarded for research into “entangled state” quantum particles. A Wisconsin scientist explains why it’s such a big deal and shares his work to find practical applications for quantum particle physics.

  • A conversation with the CEO of Sargento Foods

    We continue our series Wisconsin CEO series with a conversation with the head of Sargento Foods, the Plymouth-based company known for its shredded and pre-sliced cheeses.

  • A reaction to new DNR data showing smaller but stable wolf population

    New data from the state DNR show the number of gray wolves declined by 14 percent in the last year following a controversial wolf hunt, but the agency says population remains stable. We talk with a Wisconsin biologist about why he questions the DNR’s measurements and look ahead to where the population is likely to go from here.
