Monday on Lake Effect: Lt. Gov. Mandela Barnes, Milwaukee Magazine 'Conversations,' On That Note

Monday on Lake Effect:

On Inauguration Day in Madison, we speak with the incoming lieutenant governor, Mandela Barnes, about his political mentors and his history-making election. Later, we learn about an invasive insect that's been found in some holiday decorations that were sold in Wisconsin this winter. Plus, the backstory of Milwaukee Magazine's "Conversations" feature; and our monthly chat with cellist Robert Cohen explores the importance of a musician's time off.
