Almost every Wednesday at noon, WMSE’s Ryan Schleicher, A.V. Club Milwaukee's Matt Wild and I spend a half hour cracking each other (and probably nobody else) up while discussing Milwaukee, music, arts and culture on a show called The Disclaimer. On this week's episode, we made the most of some low-hanging fruit, spit-balling ideas about The Shops of Grand Avenue, then we gave some props to the one Milwaukee bar that dared to create an outdoor block party in the middle of the cold, sleepy month of February, and closed the show by dismissing that silly made-up Milwaukee subway map that all of your friends posted on your Facebook wall yesterday. Also discussed: broomball and the band Sponge.

You can stream this week's episode below, and catch The Disclaimer most Wednesdays at noon on 91.7 WMSE. If you're so inclined, you can also follow us on Facebook.


The U.S. Supreme Court announced that it will hear the case to determine if Wisconsin Republicans’ redistricting maps are too partisan. Do you believe the U.S. Supreme Court will order Wisconsin to redraw our legislative maps so the majority of legislative districts are competitive and voters will actually have a real choice between a Democrat and Republican?
