WUWM

This is my only audio source for Milwaukee news. I think,as a podcast, a better format would be to tie the stories into a once-daily episode, rather than short segments. Nevertheless I’m very happy to have it.

Stenographic journalism ....

... But the best currently available in the Milwaukee area. The management is openly hostile to the ideal of "afflicting the comfortable and comforting the afflicted," so know what you're consuming when consuming this media offering. This is often "one side says this, the other side disagrees" stenography. More fact-checking would be appreciated.
