Lake Effect Weekend: Looking Back on the MPD, Midnight Basketball League, Radio Chipstone, Ex Fabula

This weekend on Lake Effect:

As Chief Flynn prepares to leave office, we’ll look back at the search a decade ago that yielded his hiring. Then, how a new midnight basketball league tries to provide structure for some vulnerable young men. Radio Chipstone explores the changes in Madison’s Central Library, and we have the latest edition of our storytelling series, ExFabula.
