Monday on Lake Effect: 'Failure at the Faucet', Shankar Vedantam, War Memorial, 'Good Seeds'

Monday on Lake Effect:

The Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism examines how one weed killer is impacting drinking water in parts of the state. Then, NPR social science correspondent Shankar Vedantam explains how he helps connect academic research to people’s real lives. Later, we hear about the effort to return Milwaukee’s War Memorial Center to a place of prominence. And the author of a new food memoir opens a unique window on the Menomonee Tribe.
