Moving Forward

Very disappointing to here this could have been a possibility in Wisconsin and the rails could have been running right now. The opportunities this would open up for people and businesses to get workers if this existed now. Or wanting to visit family in another city within the hour. Very disappointing.

Excellent

They did a nice job telling a story through the eyes of many players. Interesting to look back on an issue that’s still talked about today outside this podcast.

Excellent Reporting!

Thorough investigative reporting, awesome production on a topic that is relevant to our time. Too bad these visionaries were shut down 10 years ago. Wisconsin could have been ahead of the game.
