Friday on Lake Effect: 'My Fellow Soldiers,' Milwaukee Flag, Bubbler Talk, 'The Star Thief'

Friday on Lake Effect:

This month marks the 100th anniversary of the official entry of the United States into the First World War. We discuss the roles of a key player: General John Pershing. Later, in honor of Milwaukee Day, we revisit the effort to upgrade the city’s flag - and potentially, its image. Bubbler Talk explores an under appreciated building on Milwaukee’s lakefront. And Wisconsin writer Lindsey Becker talks about why the night sky was the inspiration for her new fantasy book.
