Monday on Lake Effect: Transmitting COVID-19, Indigenous Farming, 'My Brother The Duck'

Monday on Lake Effect:

A virologist discusses COVID-19 and the impact of safer-at-home orders which seemed to be working in Wisconsin. Then, we hear how indigenous farming practices have proven to be a sign of resilience — not only in the face of genocide, but also during a global pandemic. Then, Madison children’s book author Pat Zietlow Miller talks about her new story, My Brother The Duck. Plus, how a family of great horned owls in Shorewood is giving families a break from the pandemic.
