Wednesday on Lake Effect

A National Science Foundation grant is supporting the Milwaukee Public Museum’s participation in a coordinated national project to digitize its records. We learn more from the museum’s research curator. Then, as sports betting becomes more common in the U.S., we look at the possible repercussions and the history of gambling on sports. And Canadian fingerstyle guitarist Antoine Dufour dazzles us with some tunes.

Guests:

  • Dr. Jennifer Zaspel, research curator and head of zoology, Milwaukee Public Museum
  • Mike Mirer, journalism professor, UW-Milwaukee
  • Antoine Dufour, musician
