Thursday on Lake Effect

A note of caution from the man who shone a national spotlight on the drinking water crisis in Flint, Michigan. Later, the benefits (and downsides) of being a political comedian in the Donald Trump era. A festival celebrates the renaissance of one Milwaukee neighborhood this Saturday, and local filmmakers explain the rush they get from making short films in Milwaukee.


  • Marc Edwards, Flint water crisis response director
  • Hari Kondabolu, stand-up comedian
  • Gisela Ortega, Celia Benton, & Nelson Lopez, Silver City InterNational Festival
  • Ross Bigley, Milwaukee Short Film Festival; Moriah Bame & Vonnie Quest, filmmakers
