Every Wednesday at noon, WMSE’s Ryan Schleicher, Shepherd Express’ Evan Rytlewski, and Milwaukee Record’s Matt Wild take to the WMSE airwaves to discuss all things Milwaukee. This half-hour fun-fest is called The Disclaimer, so named because none of the oft-ridiculous views expressed on the show necessarily reflect the views of the hosts’ employers. Milwaukee music, Milwaukee art, Milwaukee events, and D.I.Y. lawn care tips are frequently discussed—and rarely agreed upon. The Disclaimer: talk radio for the sane.
Miller Park is one of the finest stadiums in Major League Baseball, and one that arguably looks better today than when it opened in 2001. But who’s paying for all the upkeep? Ryan, Evan, and Matt dig into a fascinating piece on the subject by Milwaukee Magazine’s Matt Hrodey, and draw parallels between the stadium’s ongoing tax and the public funds being sought for a new Bucks arena. Matt goes on to detail some stipulations an advocacy group called Common Ground would like to see built into the new arena proposal, and updates the group on the impending doom of the Journal Sentinel.
