UW-La Crosse Outreach Specialist Spencer Wilken in the WIZM studio Wednesday to talk science.

We hit on everything from space to the Earth, and water, on La Crosse Talk PM.


La Crosse Talk PM airs weekdays at 5:07 p.m. Listen on the WIZM app, online here, or on 92.3 FM / 1410 AM / 106.7 FM (north of Onalaska). Find all the podcasts here or subscribe to La Crosse Talk PM wherever you get your podcasts.


The world now has 8 billion people. Wilken talks whether that’s sustainable or not.

In relation to that, we talk about how scientists are developing a new fake meat, or a real fake meat — not the plant-based stuff you see. That leads to all kinds of questions.

Wilken also had to get her take on the star, Betelguese (not the movie Beetlejuice), though that did spark a debate about terrible sci-fi movies and Channing Tatum talk.

Ended the show talking about the 5,000 Tundra Swans on the Mississippi River near La Crosse right now — Brownsville, Minn., actually (post here) and others just north of Winona, Minn. (post here).
