Diving in The Dairyland: Wisconsin Shipwrecks and Sanctuaries
Every week we talk about how to discover Wisconsin by land, or on water, but…what about under the water? There is so much of our waters that has yet to be explored, and Lake Michigan specifically, has some of the most incredible things waiting to be uncovered. In this episode, we dive under the fresh water with two experts in lakeshore resources, conservation, and marine sanctuaries to talk about what shipwrecks they’ve found so far – and where you can go explore for yourself!
Celebrate Lake Michigan Day with us on Friday, August 12th and remember these tips on how to be a good steward of our Wisconsin waters. After all, when you come for the shipwrecks, you’ll stay for the conservation.
County Parks You Will Love Exploring
We have been known to give our Wisconsin State Parks a lot of love on this podcast…but what about the County Parks? Often the hidden gems throughout Wisconsin, some of the county parks mentioned today are perfect for hiking, camping, and even…proposals? We cover county parks from the Northwoods, to Door County, to Milwaukee, and so many more in between! Tune in to learn about the next Wisconsin County Park that you will love exploring!
Wisconsin: The ______ Capital of the World
Wisconsin is known for being a lot of things…the capital of some, in fact! But did you know how many things Wisconsin is the ‘capital of’?!

Extend Your Stay in Green Bay: Football Season Preview
Packer season has officially arrived and we know that a game at Lambeau Field is on your bucket list! But here’s the thing…we know that you’re already going to Green Bay, so why not extend your stay to see all that Green Bay has to offer? ‘Titletown’ is known for having a mix of incredible gourmet restaurants, top-notch breweries and wineries, delicious dives, and everything in between. The ‘gastro-tourism’ scene in Green Bay is insanely under appreciated. Plus, there’s so many more activities to do, solo or with a family, outdoor recreation to explore, and events fit to celebrate in Wisconsin’s oldest city. After listening to this episode, you’re definitely going to want to extend your stay in Green Bay!

In this episode we talk to a few people in the Discover Wisconsin world about their favorite places to kayak, how to prepare for a long kayaking trip, and even dive into the details for fishing and kayaking. All that and more are waiting for you in this episode!
Waupaca: A Hollywood Hidden Gem of Inspiration
Hollywood called and it turns out…they’re big fans of Wisconsin 😎
Jason and Jamie Neese are living in California and are Supervising Producers on Netflix’s ‘The Umbrella Academy’. But some of their best writing and creating isn’t done in the hustle and bustle. It’s done by the lake and surrounded by nature. Where better to find your Hollywood inspiration than in the Wisconsin Northwoods?
In this episode, we talk to Jason and Jamie about how they found the perfect Inn in Waupaca along the Chain of Lakes to work on their latest shows, write scripts, and become creatively inspired. Plus, at the end of the episode, they share their favorite Waupaca hidden gem!
I love the podcast, but what I love even more is the hosts’ idea for a Wisconsin Jeopardy competition. Why not dedicate an episode for Eric Paulsen to face off against the dynamic duo of Stephanie Klett and Rick Rose about their vast knowledge of the Badger State?!! Trivia nerds like me would eat it up more than Josh Ostermann can eat a thin crust, pub style-cut pizza.
I love WI!
Great Podcast and very informative about a variety of topics about the great state of Wisconsin. I would love to hear an episode about Wisconsin Disc Golf courses. We have so many top tier courses and a large disc golf community and tournaments year round!
