Wednesday on Lake Effect: Affordable Housing, UW-Milwaukee Fall Plans, 'Irresisitble'

Wednesday on Lake Effect

We learn about new affordable housing projects in Milwaukee’s north side neighborhoods. Then, we learn why UW-Milwaukee decided to do both online and in-person classes this fall. We talk about the new Jon Stewart film Irresistible, a political satire set in small town Wisconsin. And a journaling project from the Wisconsin Historical Society seeks to show how everyday people are experiencing this pandemic.
