Dan Harmon

Automotive Contributor

Dan Harmon was one of the original members of Lake Effect (formerly At Ten). He started at WUWM in November of 1998 and left December of 2015 after 17 years of production.

He continues on as one of Lake Effect's automotive contributors, which he's been since the early days of At Ten.

Dan's interest in cars goes way back, before he even had a drivers license. He usually finds something to like about any car and thinks we live in a very exciting time for automobiles.

"We're at a low in automotive aesthetic design, but the changes in technology make up for it," Dan says. "I love 'old' cars, but always look forward to what comes next.”

Dan interviews auto writer, Mark Savage, each month (among others), and can be seen haunting car dealerships and auto shows. He lives in Portland, OR, where old cars refuse to die.

One could argue about the importance of eating breakfast, but most of us would agree that it’s one of the best, and cheapest, meals to go out to eat for.

Some restaurants on Christenson's breakfast list are:

When you hear the words "ramen noodles," your mind may turn to those 39-cent friends to both college students and the thrifty alike. But the ones you’ll find at Milwaukee area restaurants these days are a cut above.

Dylan Moran Facebook

If you set out to name five current stand-up comedians, the name Dylan Moran probably wouldn’t make your list.

Few things are as mysterious to us as the existence of an afterlife. At the same time, the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life found that three-quarters of Americans believe in an afterlife – 50-percent strongly so.

Proving it, however, is relegated to religious beliefs and personal testaments, and isn’t typically in the realm of people in science and medicine.

The idea of a driverless car has always been the stuff of science fiction. Even George Jetson sat in the driver’s seat of his personal flying saucer.  But it’s a technology that may well be on our doorstep.

Philosophy is a required course in many colleges and universities, but few of us ever get beyond that level.

We’ve all heard the cliché – don’t judge a book by its cover. 

The 2014 calendar year doesn’t begin for another two-and-a-half months, but the 2014 car model year has been underway for almost all of 2013.
