We talk to the author of a new book on growing up in rural America and the difference forces that shaped her upbringing. Then, a Wisconsin wine and spirits expert joins us to help us better understand our wines and make them more approachable.

Featured in this Show

  • A tale of two vastly different lives

    We talk to the author of a memoir about her girlhood in small town Arkansas, and her analysis of how the larger forces of poverty, education, religion and politics affected how she and her brilliant childhood best friend ended up having very different lives.

  • Food Friday: A beginner's guide to wine

    An extensive wine list at a bar or restaurant can be difficult to navigate, and many people who enjoy wine don’t know a lot about the varieties they drink. A Wisconsin wine and spirits expert takes us through some of the basics of grapes and regions to make the wine-buying experience more approachable.
