  • State News Roundup – December 6, 2019

    The Platteville Common Council is debating whether to allow all-terrain vehicles and utility vehicles on more city streets. We hear what supporters and opponents of the change are saying. We also look back at a week of multiple school violence incidents around the state.

  • Fake Or Not? And Does It Matter?

    We talk with a historian who’s been exploring authenticity — the calls we make about what’s real and what’s fake — and what we can learn about “real” things by considering really good fakes, such as man-made diamonds.
