Thursday on Lake Effect: Ruth Conniff, College Possible, Jazz Musician Eric Jacobson

May 10, 2017

Thursday on Lake Effect:

We look at the week in politics with Ruth Conniff of The Progressive, starting with the firing of FBI Director James Comey. We examine the role the group College Possible played in the college career of several young Milwaukeeans. Plus, an essayist recounts an unusual lesson ahead of Mother’s Day and jazz trumpet player Eric Jacobson joins us in our performance studio.
