  • The latest on funding for American Family Field improvements

    We talk about the latest news on the plan to keep the Brewers in Milwaukee until at least 2040 via a roughly $700 million plan for improvements to American Family Field in the coming years.

  • Wisconsin FoodShare 101

    Last year, Wisconsin FoodShare participants received more than $2 billion in assistance. But the program has changed since the Department of Health Services stopped distributing emergency pandemic funds and reinstated its normal work requirement. We get an updated FoodShare 101 from Wisconsin’s Medicaid director—who’s eligible, what benefits they can expect and how they can get started.
