The last week has brought a string of different crimes influenced by anger, hatred and political views– from the attempted mail bombings to the shooting in a Pittsburgh synagogue. We talk with an expert about what could be the driving forces behind these different crimes and what it could mean for our future. We also hear another installation of Beyond The Ballot from our news team focusing on what Wisconsinites want out of health care this election round.

Beyond the Ballot: Health Care Edition
This election season, Wisconsin Public Radio is meeting people where they are, in their communities, to talk about the issues that matter most to them. As part of our ongoing conversations about the Beyond the Ballot project, we look at how Wisconsinites are thinking about health care this election season.
Understanding American Political Violence
In the span of one week, the country saw a string of crimes motivated by hatred and partisanship: the killing of two black senior citizens at a grocery store in Kentucky, the attempted mail bombing of 12 prominent Democrats and CNN, and the killing of 11 worshippers at the Tree of Life Congregation synagogue in Pittsburgh. We take a look at what political violence in the United States means and why it happens.
