Tuesday on Lake Effect: Indian Child Labor Activist, Comedian Maz Jobrani, Marathan Training

Tuesday on Lake Effect:

We revisit an interview with an Indian child labor activist after the work of him and his father is recognized with a Nobel Peace Prize. Later, Iranian-American comedian and regular on NPR’s Wait Wait... Don’t Tell Me! Maz Jobrani talks about performing stand-up comedy in the middle east. We’ll find out what it takes to train for a marathon in Milwaukee – or anywhere; and catch up with Wisconsin native Rebecca Rasmussen and learn about her recent novel, Evergreen.
