President Biden is getting pressure from Democrats to cancel student loan debt. We talk about America’s student debt burden, and the impact some loan forgiveness would have on the economy. Then a museum curator tells us about a new exhibition of hidden art that’s re-emerged from Nazi-occupied Czech Republic. And we hear from a state senator about why there’s a renewed push in the legislature to provide more dentistry access in rural parts of Wisconsin.
