Air Date:
Heard On Central Time

Is it time to rethink taxes in Wisconsin? We talk to the author of a new report which suggests the state should cut income and property taxes, while expanding sales tax. In Wisconsin Life, we learn about a Cranberry Festival in the state. Then we hear about two Milwaukee art projects: one that focuses on images of everyday people in Wisconsin’s largest city, and another that works to bring the city’s residents together through art.
