For the last couple weeks, I have had the opportunity to be the guest host for “Connect MKE,” the local news program at CW18 and My24 Milwaukee.

If you missed the episodes live, you can check out the interviews here at The Recombobulation Area in podcast form. You can also watch the full episode linked below on YouTube.

This week’s episode featured a segment on races happening in the Wisconsin State Legislature, under new Republican-drawn maps. I talked to John D. Johnson of Marquette University to discuss that issue. For the next segment, I talked to Kristina Hoffman of the Milwaukee County Transit System about raising ridership and the many new things happening this year in public transit in Milwaukee.
