Lake Effect Weekend: Volcano Science, Influence Of Motherhood, Ex Fabula

May 12, 2018

This weekend on Lake Effect:

We blow our tops with former volcanologist George Stone and learn a little about the inner-workings of a volcano. Then, a Milwaukee researcher explores how motherhood has been used as a tool to influence public opinion. Essayist Kirsten Wisniewski relates a Mother’s Day story encountered on a train in Wales. And the latest in our storytelling series, Ex Fabula.
