Supper clubs are a uniquely-Wisconsin institution where history, science and social traditions collide. We look at a project by Wisconsin Public Television and UW-Madison that explores the story of supper clubs. We also discuss a children’s book set on the Fox River, and we’ll take a look at the legacy of civil rights leader Julian Bond.
