Featured in this Show

  • Legalizing and supporting skateboarding in Wisconsin

    Draft legislation would remove skateboards from a list of “play vehicles” prohibited on roadways in Wisconsin. If passed, municipalities could decide where to allow skateboarders and whether to build increasingly popular skate parks. We’re joined by two advocates and skateboarders.

  • What do rapidly warming oceans mean for the world?

    Oceans cover 70 percent of the earth’s surface and this year, their temperatures reached the highest in recorded history. We talk with an oceanographer from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to learn what this means for our planet, climate change and weather patterns.
