Wisconsin reaches an all-time high in domestic violence-related deaths
In 2022, Wisconsin saw a record-setting increase in domestic violence-related suicides and homicides, up 20 percent compared to the previous year. We talk to a domestic violence and policy researcher about why Wisconsin’s domestic violence problem is worsening, and what we can do to improve outcomes for victims.
If you’re experiencing domestic violence, you can call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-SAFE (7233) or contact a local victim service provider.

We talk to an industry expert on the case and his thoughts on how Google’s 90 percent share of the search market has deteriorated the quality of their product.
