Episode 1 of our podcast, So - That Happened is now live. We're still working through a few technical issues, particularly since some of this podcast was recorded in noisy places. 

In this episode we explore citizen activists in the Chippewa Valley who are making a difference through their actions. I went on a bus trip to Madison with the Wisconsin Conservation Voters as they lobbied with their state Senators to pass legislation to protect water in Wisconsin.  I also spoke to Chris Hambuch-Boyle about her efforts to support our public schools for Public Schools Week along with the Wisconsin Public Education Network.

We're starting a podcast. The first episode of So - That Happened just went live. It is not a regular podcast episode, but is more of an introduction. I talk a little about the background of WisCommunity, how we got where we are, and what you can expect in 2020 from the podcast and from the site. You can listen many different ways. There's a play widget on the front page of the site. You can go to our podcast page. At our podcast page you can also leave feedback or audio for us to use in our upcoming episodes. 

We are also being distributed to multiple different podcast services through our main platform, Anchor.fm. It is currently available on Spotify.  The first episode should roll out to the other sites very soon, though it looks like Apple Podcasts is being a little persnickety. 

I want to encourage you to think of this as your podcast in the community, so please send in ideas for what you'd like to hear and how it can improve.

Life has been full. I've spent some time regrouping, making plans, and trying to forge a path for Wis.Community for 2020. As some of you know, it has been a trying year at Cruiskeen Farm. My partner and wife Lorelei died in August. Our doggie Shadow left shortly before that. As a result, I'm learning to manage the farm here, which I've blissfully left to Lori while we have lived here. I've also taken some time out to get used to living alone.

Producing news costs money. Newspapers around the country are struggling to find ways to fund news-gathering operations and production costs. Our production costs are fairly low, but there still is a need to pay people to do the work, to pay web hosting costs, development costs, and more.
