We talk with NPR’s Michel Martin, in town for a speaking engagement, about news in the age of twitter and the compact between journalists and the public . Then, a new course hopes to get students thinking differently about water. We learn about a new parking app called ParqEx heading to Milwaukee and we talk with Milwaukee Opera Theatre about their re-imagining of Mozart’s The Magic Flute.
