We’ve all been changed by the experience of living through a pandemic. We figured out how to sanitize groceries, mute ourselves on Zoom and keep from killing our roommates. But we’re also tackling bigger, existential questions — how can we, individually and collectively, find meaning in the experience of this pandemic? *Original Air Date: * May 23,…
 
Not everyone has a nice, big yard to stretch out in while sheltering in place from COVID-19. But maybe you don't need one. People are using virtual spaces to live out the real experiences they miss — like coffee shops, road trips, even building your own house on a deserted island, or Walden Pond. In a world where we're mostly confined to our homes …
 
Rustling of leaves, sploshing of water, birds calling, bees buzzing. Wherever you live — city or country, East coast, West coast, or in between — we share common, contemplative experiences on our walks outside. In this hour, we assemble a sonic guide to finding solace in nature. Original Air Date: * *May 09, 2020 *Guests: * William Helmreich — Davi…
 
We owe our past and future existence on Earth to fungi. Some can heal you, some can kill you, and some can change you forever. And the people who love them are convinced that mushrooms explain the world. Original Air Date: * *June 08, 2019 *Guests: * Lawrence Millman — Paul Stamets — Eugenia Bone — Michael Pollan — Dennis McKenna — Robin Carhart-Ha…
 
This week, the fight between Democratic Gov. Tony Evers' administration and GOP lawmakers over the state's COVID-19 stay-at-home rules was on full display in front of the courts, with Evers' side arguing it has the authority to make such orders and Republicans saying they need to be involved in the process. And the court agreed to hear the case. Me…
 
In times of crisis, we need music. We look at how far people will go — even under quarantine, during a pandemic — to find ways to make music together. Original Air Date: * *April 25, 2020 *Guests: * Lisa Bielawa — Varttina — Bobby McFerrin — Moken — Vijay Iyer — Brandy Clark — Nicole Paris — Edward Cage *Interviews In This Hour: * Putting The Mood …
 
We all miss touching things — groceries, door knobs, hands, faces. And most of all, skin. The living tissue that simultaneously protects us from the world, and lets us feel it. In this episode, the politics, biology, and inner life of your skin. Original Air Date: April 18, 2020 **Guests: ** Angelo Bautista — Tiffany Field — Alissa Waters — Nina Ja…
 
We all tell stories about our lives: funny stories, happy stories, sad stories. But are they true stories? In an age of “alternative facts” and “fake news,” we’re all thinking harder about why truth matters – not just in politics, but in our personal lives. A biographer, a poet, a memoirist and a filmmaker describe the moral struggle and personal c…
 
Why do people turn to poetry during troubled times? We saw it after 9/11 and we're seeing it now as the coronavirus travels around the world. When the world seems broken, poetry is often the one kind of language that helps. Original Air Date: * *April 04, 2020 *Guests: * Kitty O'Meara — Jericho Brown — Edward Hirsch — Alice Walker — Ken Nordine — L…
 
This week, as Wisconsin's election grew ever nearer and the new coronavirus continued to spread in the state, the news seemed to get crazier and more hectic. A federal judge made a ruling, the governor called a special session, Republican leaders pushed back and it's still not entirely clear when and how the election will take place in the middle o…
 
This week, To the Best of Our Knowledge comes to you from our kitchens and homes. We’re safe, but we’ve all been thinking about the people on the front lines of the pandemic — doctors, nurses and hospital staffs. We’ve been seeing them on social media — the nurses in NYC wearing garbage bags because there aren’t enough sterile gowns. Doctors figuri…
 
The spread of the new coronavirus continues to push us forward into new territory; we're truly living in unprecedented times — In Wisconsin, that has meant figuring out what a sweeping "stay-at-home" order from the governor's administration means for residents, while also keeping up with a whole bunch of back and forth about how to conduct the stat…
 
Even with all the music available today, most of us still listen primarily to just a few comfy genres. But there’s so much more out there — and so much of it defies neat, algorithm-friendly categorization. Original Air Date: * *June 01, 2019 *Guests: * Kevin Gift — Wendel Patrick — Philip Glass — Robert Glasper — Toni Blackman — Clarice Jensen — Ev…
 
Before the time of commercial flights and road trips, we traveled to far off places without taking a single step. All you had to do was open a book. From Africa to England, to a kamikaze cockpit, and to realms of fantasy. Books aren’t just books. They’re passports to anywhere. This hour, we’re traveling by book. Original Air Date: * *March 14, 2020…
 
Wisconsin state government is taking a number of steps as COVID-19 spreads in Wisconsin. From understanding the details of the governor's declared public health emergency this week to delving into the emergency actions by the state elections agency ahead of April 7's presidential primary in Wisconsin, the WPR Politics Podcast has you covered.…
 
How well do you sleep? Every night, millions of us turn out the lights hoping and praying for a good night’s sleep. And every night, millions of us lie awake in the dark. We explore what keeps us up, and what happens when we embrace the times when we just can't seem to rest. Original Air Date: March 07, 2020 Guests: Steve Paulson — Guy Leschziner —…

Restaurants, bars, coffee shops — is there any public place left that doesn’t play background music? Loudly? In this show, we’re making the case for more silence. Because perhaps some need the drone of TVs, traffic and Muzak, to drown out the pesky sound of thinking, but others go to great lengths to find respite from a blaringly loud world. Origin…
 
Are there new ways to treat depression, anxiety and bipolar disorder? We explore some unconventional treatments for mental illness, including exercise, psychedelics and even horror films. Need to talk? Contact the National Alliance for Mental Illness at 1-800-950-NAMI (6264). If you or someone you know may be considering suicide, contact the Nation…
 
Exchanging glances with the natural world happens more often than you’d think. It can be so profound, there’s a name for it: eye-to-eye epiphany. Original Air Date: February 08, 2020 *Guests: * Gavin Van Horn — Jenny Kendler — Ivan Schwab — Jane Goodall — Alan Lightman *Interviews In This Hour: * In The Eye Of The Osprey: A Physicist's Wild Epiphan…
