Best Wisconsin Podcast

This show is unlike anything else I have found covering Wisconsin. Kristin covers such a wide range of topics, some very serious but some very silly. Every episode I learn something and laugh, sometimes even at the same time.

It’s a little weird as a podcast since it’s also a live radio show but you get used to it.
