Wednesday on Lake Effect: 'Whatever Happened to Wisconsin Nice', 'Ringside Seat', Drag Racing

Wednesday on Lake Effect:

New short film, "Whatever Happened to Wisconsin Nice" looks at Wisconsin’s climate of political polarization. Then, we revisit our interview with former state senator Tim Cullen, who writes about political polarization in his recent memoir, Ringside Seat. We talk about how art museums reach out to find new museum-goers. Plus, how drag racing reflects some much bigger issues in society.


  • Brad Lichtenstein, filmmaker, "Whatever Happened to Wisconsin Nice"
  • Tim Cullen, former Democratic state senator
  • Stuart Deets, Student Ambassadors for the Chazen Museum of Art; Gianofer Fields, Radio Chipstone
  • David Kreidler, Harley Davidson Museum
