A food preservation specialist shares some pie recipes with us, as well as how we can make summer pie fillings stretch beyond the season. Then we learn how research for an HIV vaccine is linked to developing a vaccine for COVID-19. And we talk to a consumer protection group calling on utility companies to work with customers facing service shutoffs amic the COVID-19 pandemic.

  • Food Friday: Summer Pies

    There are certain things that just go with summer: backyard cookouts, fireflies, baseball… and pies. In this week’s Food Friday, we share some tips and tricks on making great fruit and berry pies, plus no-bake refrigerator pies. We also discuss how to preserve summer pie fillings for use all year.

  • How The Search For An HIV Cure Advanced Vaccine Development

    In the midst of the coronavirus pandemic we look back to learn from the decades of work that went into finding a cure for another life-threatening virus, HIV. We learn how the research, collaboration and development to find an HIV vaccine have set the stage for the scientists working rapidly to combat the new coronavirus.

  • Consumer Advocacy Group Calls On State Utilities To Be Flexible With Customers Facing Shutoffs

    In March, Gov. Tony Evers placed a moratorium on Wisconsin utility companies from disconnecting service as communities grappled with the COVID-19 pandemic. That rule has now been lifted. We speak with the head of a group calling on these companies to help their customers as the virus continues to spread.
