Friday on Lake Effect: Police Ride-along, Milwaukee Debate League, Glass Artist, Pro Wrestling

Friday on Lake Effect:

As part of our Project Milwaukee series, we ride along with a police patrol in the 53206 zip code – an area especially hit by high rates of black male incarceration. Later, we’ll learn about the work being done to raise the profile of high school debate teams in urban schools here. Plus, a conversation with Wisconsin glass artist Beth Lipman about a major work on display in West Bend. And a former staple on Milwaukee’s pro wrestling scene has a new memoir about his 25 years in the sport.
