Wednesday on Lake Effect: January 6 insurrection, frog mating arena, J.R.R. Tolkien Collection, science of sledding

Today on Lake Effect, we look back on the attack at the US Capitol and look at other times in American history when the Capitol was under threat. We learn how a sound-proof arena is making it easier to study frog mating calls at UW-Milwaukee. Plus, explore the J.R.R. Tolkien Collection Manuscripts housed at Marquette University. Then, learn about the science of sledding.
