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.
A recent online list named Milwaukee the number-one city “you wouldn’t expect for tech.” Inevitably, everyone in town started sharing it on social media. The only problem: The list was completely devoid of facts. Ryan, Evan, and Matt dig into this hilariously dumb list, and commend Journal Sentinel reporter Rick Romell for debunking it through the use of—get this!—journalism. Next, the subject of whether or not the Milwaukee Police Department’s flashy website can be considered a legitimate news source is discussed. The half-hour ends in typical fashion, with Matt bringing up “Weird Al” Yankovic for some reason.
