Thursday on Lake Effect: Republican Candidates for President, Shipwrecks, Renaissance Theaterworks

Thursday on Lake Effect:

Many of the potential Republican candidates for President – including Scott Walker, will appear in California this weekend, trying to impress big supporters. Lake Effect looks at where the Wisconsin governor fits in that ever-expanding field. Later, what the work of a Wisconsin marine archeologist tells us about the state’s history. We’ll talk about the birth of stars with our astronomy contributor. And a one-man show based on a Tolstoy novella opens tomorrow in Milwaukee.
