Heartland Signal: '12 months to restore democracy in Wisconsin'
The elections held over the next year will go a long way toward determining the future of democracy in the state of Wisconsin. Part of our brand new partnership with Heartland Signal and WCPT 820 AM.
The Recombobulation Area is a six-time Milwaukee Press Club award-winning weekly opinion column and online publication written and published by veteran Milwaukee journalist Dan Shafer. Learn more about it here.
Here at The Recombobulation Area, we just finished up our best month yet for new paid subscribers to date, and now we have some more exciting news to share.
First, The Recombobulation Area has been selected to be a featured publication on Substack! That means you can find us on the Substack homepage. Many of you new subscribers this week have done just that, so welcome aboard!
The Recombobulation Area is also starting a new partnership. Starting today, we are going to be working with Heartland Signal and WCPT 820, progressive radio based in Chicago. Heartland Signal is the radio station’s new digital newsroom, and they will be covering politics and policy in states around the Midwest. If you’re anywhere on social media, you’ve surely seen their content – like just yesterday, when they found video of Ron Johnson saying a conspiracy theory that the covid vaccine causes AIDS “may be true.”
Heartland Signal is now launching a new opinion section, and yours truly will be a regular contributor. Much like our partnership with Milwaukee Record, you’ll find each new column on their website as well as linked here in The Recombobulation Area’s newsletter.
Additionally, you will also hear me as a regular guest on WCPT 820 AM. I’ll be joining Patti Vasquez on “Driving it Home” every Wednesday during the 5 p.m. hour, and will be on other programs on occasion, as well. Here’s a clip from a recent appearance on Edwin Eisendrath’s weekend show, “The Big Picture”:
The first column with this new partnership is up today. It is on the importance the next 12 months has toward restoring democracy in the state of Wisconsin, not only with the incredibly important midterm elections, but with next spring’s election for State Supreme Court, as well.
