If you don’t follow As Goes Wisconsin on your favorite social media platforms, go ahead and change that now. The brainchild of Wisconsin-born writer/comedian Kristin Brey, As Goes Wisconsin examines the many, many, many confounding political issues currently shaping our great state, and presents them in a humorous (but always informative) way. From Packers-themed explainers on gerrymandering to TikTok videos pondering the awful enigma of Glenn Grothman, As Goes Wisconsin makes paying attention to Wisconsin politics just a little bit less infuriating.
And hey! Now Brey is joining Milwaukee Record‘s own Matt Wild for a biweekly, shoot-the-shit current events show called Matt And Kristin Talk About Milwaukee And Wisconsin Stuff! Fun!
This week: After two months and four episodes, Matt and Kristin finally meet. Like, in person. Like, in the same room. Weird! Kristin patiently explains Wisconsin’s big Medicaid/BadgerCare debacle, Matt discusses Milwaukee County’s lack of funding and its canceled July 3 fireworks, and both hosts marvel at the top-flight guests speaking at next week’s “Burn The Masks Party.” Plus, another thrilling installment of “Mandatory Johnson”!
