We hear reactions to Wauwatosa police officer Joseph Mensah’s resignation after he was responsible for three on-duty deaths. Then, we learn how data science helps to provide guidance during the coronavirus pandemic from a mathematical biologist. Plus, a new compilation album from Wisconsin musicians pays tribute to Vietnam War-era protest songs.

  • Lauren Ancel Meyers, mathematical biologist and director of the UT Covid-19 Modeling Consortium
  • Miss Lotus, singer-songwriter; Cody James, singer-songwriter and organizer of the compilation album Parallel Universe
