We ask a CNN statistician why he set out to become an audio storyteller, and what we can learn about ourselves by getting behind the numbers. Then, we get a taste of a new WPR special looking at some of the people who’ve been able to cover the Green Bay Packers.

Featured in this Show

  • Who we are and what we believe, behind the numbers

    A statistician takes a stab at telling human stories, beyond just the facts and figures.

  • Green Bay journalists share memories from covering the Packers

    The Green Bay Packers hold a unique place in Wisconsin culture, and a new WPR special digs into the team’s history and its connection with fans. We talk with two WPR hosts behind the program, and hear their chat with a video journalist about his decades in Lambeau Field.
