Lake Effect Weekend: Home/Work Segregation, Play Premiere, Radio Chipstone, Pretzels for God

Mar 9, 2019

Today on Lake Effect Weekend:

A new study looks at the disparity between home and workplace segregation in U.S. cities. We'll talk with the lead author. Then, we talk with Australian playwright Andrew Bovell. His newest play, Things I Know to Be True, had its American premiere this past week at the Milwaukee Rep. Radio Chipstone sees the Un/Seen at the Chazen Museum of Art in Madison, and we learn how the humble pretzel briefly became a path to godliness in the 1970s.

Guests:

  • Matthew Hall, Cornell University
  • Andrew Bovell, playwright
  • Sarah Anne Carter, Chipstone Foundation; Iseult Gillespie & Tori Yonkers, UW Madison; Gianofer Fields, Material Culture contributor
  • Shoshi Parks, freelance writer; Michelle Maternowski & Mitch Teich, The Pretzel Podcast
