Nearly every Wednesday at noon, Ryan Schleicher of WMSE, Evan Rytlewski of the Shepherd Express, and Matt Wild of A.V. Club Milwaukee take to the WMSE airwaves to discuss all things Milwaukee. The half-hour fun-fest is called The Disclaimer, so titled because none of the sometimes cranky and ridiculous opinions expressed during the show represent those of the three hosts’ employers. Milwaukee music, Milwaukee art, Milwaukee events, and D.I.Y. lawn care tips are frequently discussed—and rarely agreed upon.
It’s that magical, news-starved time of the year when Beloit College releases its annual Mindset List, a peek into the world views of incoming college freshmen. Did you know, for instance, that for this generation of entering college students, “Gaga has never been baby talk”? Ugh. Ryan, Evan, and Matt discuss this increasingly lame list, and wonder if it’s two ’90s references away from becoming a BuzzFeed piece. Next up, the gents chat about a Milwaukee Neighborhood News Service piece (courtesy of Urban Milwaukee) that details a new program designed to help bored teens find something positive to do in the city. Memories of creepy teen centers, hormone-addled fist-fights, and Roger Ebert ensue.
