Wednesday on Lake Effect: Spirituality & Medicine, Technical College Funding, Florentine Opera

Wednesday on Lake Effect:

A pioneer in the integration of spirituality and medicine explains why it’s so important for the two worlds to be linked. Then, a proposed bill would change the way the state’s technical colleges are funded – and governed. A new program at the Florentine Opera offers residencies for young conductors, and author Emily St. John Mandel’s new novel offers a chilling, but not entirely bleak, vision of civilization’s end.


  • Doctor Christina Puchalski, medicine and spirituality
  • Claire Hanan, associate editor at Milwaukee Magazine
  • Vladimir Kulenovic, symphony and opera conductor
  • Emily St. John Mandel, author
