Wednesday 5/17/23: broadband access, conversion therapy harm, bears in southern WI, Crave Brothers Farmstead

Today on Lake Effect, we learn about an effort to get fast, affordable internet to everyone in Milwaukee. Then in our Wi Gayz series we learn about the harm conversion therapy can cause to LGBTQ youth. We tell you why more bears are being spotted in southern Wisconsin and what to do if you encounter one. Plus, we explore how a local farm is putting their waste to good use, by creating electricity with it.
