Who's eligible to vote in Wisconsin?
Election fraud is rare in Wisconsin. We examine the reasons people cast a ballot illegally and how the state tracks voter eligibility.
Jane Goodall returns to Madison
We caught up with the acclaimed ethologist and conservationist before her talk on UW-Madison’s campus, where she reflected on her time in Tanzania and our shared climate future.
Tracing the John Birch Society's origins in Wisconsin and its impact on conservatism
The ultraconservative John Birch Society spent the 1960s and 70s pushing the Republican Party further to the right and spreading conspiracy theories along the way. We talk with a political historian about the group and the wealthy Wisconsin businessmen who helped get it off the ground.
