Thursday on Lake Effect: Proposed SNAP Changes, 'The Vietnam War on Film,' Radio Chipstone

Thursday on Lake Effect

A look at the USDA’s proposed changes to the federal nutrition program known as SNAP, and what it could mean for families in Wisconsin. Then, how the 1968 John Wayne film The Green Berets highlights the rift in the United States over Vietnam. Radio Chipstone tastes a bit of history and we explore the unique history of cats, how they ended up in our homes, and the paths they took to get there.
