Featured in this Show

  • Reducing mental health care disparities for people of color

    July is National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month and many people of color in Wisconsin aren’t receiving adequate mental health care. We talk to a UW Health psychiatric consultant about the prevalence of the issue and possible solutions.

  • Businesses weigh in on the future of Wisconsin's economy

    A new survey conducted by Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce shows that less than half of Wisconsin businesses plan to hire new employees over the next six months. At the same time, the survey shows that fears of a future recession have slightly declined in that same group over the last six months. We talk to an economic growth and development expert, as well as a representative from the WMC, about the results of the survey.
