Wednesday on Lake Effect: US Standing Overseas, the Story of Walter Paul Minx, 'Sweet Spot'

Wednesday on Lake Effect:

Our foreign policy analyst talks about the US standing overseas, and recent elections in the UK and France. Later, the nearly unbelievable story of a 1940s homemade submarine caper and its would-be mastermind, and why the author of a new book about ice cream across America decided she had to spend some significant time in Milwaukee.
