The traveling bug show known as ‘The Creepy Crawly Zoo’ was born decades ago out of one man’s desire to stay away from the 9 to 5 life and his crazy idea to be able to make money talking about bugs. We talk to the ‘bug whisperer’ about his kid-oriented bug show and where he hopes to go from here. We also find out more about an entire Wendy’s employee team that chose to walk out and close the restaurant on the Wisconsin News Roundup and learn more about the Trump Administration’s discussion of Welfare program changes.
