Thursday on Lake Effect: 'Take Me From the River,' World Philosophy Day, Mike Mangione & the Kin

Thursday on Lake Effect:

A Milwaukee man who works in refugee resettlement describes diversity as the difference between a field of tulips and a prairie in bloom. Later, a new film chronicles three Milwaukeeans’ experiences at the  Standing Rock protests. We'll hear the case for reading philosophy, and reading it slowly, plus an in-studio performance by Milwaukee’s Mike Mangione and the Kin ahead of their new album launch tomorrow.
