Nearly every Wednesday at noon, Ryan Schleicher of WMSE, Evan Rytlewski of the Shepherd Express, and Matt Wild of The 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.
With the “foodie” phenomenon firmly entrenched in Milwaukee’s dining scene, it’s time to ponder whether the movement is a good thing, or if it’s just plain annoying. Self-proclaimed foodie Steph Kilen drops by The Disclaimer to talk about her reservations with the movement, her thoughts on food elitism, and why dinner is sometimes just dinner. As a bonus, Matt thrills his co-hosts by reading a passage from the Roman historian Livy, who blamed the downfall of the Roman republic on foodies. No kidding!
