Featured in this Show

  • Balancing Food Production And Wildlife That Shares The Land

    An environmentalist reflects on the loss of birds and other wildlife that used to be common on the rural landscape of his youth. He then investigates agricultural methods that can both increase food production for humans and make room for those creatures.

  • A Look At The Primary Race For Wisconsin's Supreme Court Justice

    On Tuesday, voters will narrow the field of Wisconsin Supreme Court justice candidates from three to two. We look at where the race between Justice Dan Kelly, Dane County circuit court judge Jill Karofsky and Marquette University law professor Ed Fallone stands today and what’s at stake.

  • The History Of A Women's KKK Chapter In Chippewa Falls

    In the 1920s, a women’s chapter of the KKK in Chippewa Falls worked to uphold prohibition and keep Catholics out of politics. We talk with the author of a new book about their history and what the group can tell us about how hate groups operate.
