Heard On Central Time

A Madison-based painter and local non-profits are sprucing up neighborhoods around Dane County while bringing communities together. We explore how the project engages people and improves communities. We also talk to an author about how humans could survive after a catastrophic event, and discuss a proposed big merger of two cable companies. Then, we hear your comments on a change to the Madison school district’s dress code that would ban attire depicting Native American team names, logos and mascots. Finally, we get a report on Wisconsin’s oil transportation system and why some residents are worried about it.
