The standard wait time at your local DMV is notoriously long. We talk to a reporter who explains why some people might be facing longer lines at the Division of Motor Vehicles, and why it’s not getting enough attention. We also have a conversation about political anger, from voters, candidates, and politicians alike. What do we do about it?

  • DMVs Wait Times Have Worsened

    The Division of Motor Vehicles isn’t generally associated with speedy service. But if you feel like you’ve spent even more time waiting at Wisconsin’s DMVs lately, you’re not the only one. A reporter tells us what’s happened and why the issue hasn’t received much attention.

  • Voters And Anger

    Voters across the country are angry, and with an election just around the corner, they’ll likely be taking that anger with them to the polls. While political anger is nothing new, many feel like it’s being amplified in the age of Donald Trump. We talk with an anger expert about how the emotion is being used by both candidates and voters these days, what all this political anger is doing to us, and what, if anything, can be done about it.
