Wednesday on Lake Effect: Crime Data Analysis, Math Genius, West African Music

Wednesday on Lake Effect:

We’ll examine the growing field of crime data analysis, which is being fed by an increasing number of college graduates from Milwaukee. Later, how a mugging and a crack on the head turned Jason Padgett into a math genius. We’ll speak with award-winning author and Wisconsin native Mona Simpson about her latest novel, “Casebook,” and her hometown of Green Bay. And some West African music played on a distinctive 22-string instrument.
