Monday on Lake Effect: I-94 Expansion, Bubbler Talk, Listen MKE, Cherry Blossom Festival

Monday on Lake Effect, we look at Governor Evers’ plan to expand and update I-94 in Milwaukee. Bubbler Talk explores the history of Milwaukee’s South Side churches. Then, we hear some of the latest Listen MKE which addresses the historical tensions between Black and Asian communities. And we learn about the cultural significance of Japanese cherry blossoms, and the spring festival that celebrates their bloom.
