Thursday on Lake Effect: Outsider Political Candidates, Wolves and Livestock, 'Bronx Gothic'

Jan 10, 2018

Thursday on Lake Effect

A look at why the things that make outsider political candidates appealing to voters may actually make them less effective executives. Then, a Wisconsin scientist discusses what we can learn from studying how the state of Michigan weighed protecting wolves and protecting livestock. Later, how kids and electronic devices can be a troubling combination, particularly when those devices are used at night. And the creator of the show Bronx Gothic explores the universal experiences of growing up as a girl.
