  • What to expect from the first GOP presidential debate next week

    The first debate for the Republican presidential nomination will be held on Aug. 23 in Milwaukee. We check in with two political scientists to hear what issues they expect candidates to push and whether anyone has a chance of dethroning former President Donald Trump as the leader of the GOP.

  • The drop in shelter dog adoptions

    Every year, dog rescuers in other parts of the country relocate thousands of animals to Wisconsin. But dog adoptions here are at historic lows, resulting in Wisconsin shelters unable to accept more out-of-state canines. We talk to two animal welfare officials about the situation.
