Remember video rentals? They’re almost extinct in Wisconsin and Minnesota. That was part of Tuesday’s La Crosse Talk PM. On each end of that rant, a discussion about politicians politicking, including saying the quiet part out loud when it comes to voter suppression.

La Crosse Talk PM airs weekdays at 5:06 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.


Wisconsin Democracy Campaign executive director Matt Rothschild joined for a bit to discuss Wisconsin Republicans and voter suppression, in a story about an state election commissioner mentioning the success his GOP party had getting people not to vote.

After that, a very important rant about the last video rental stores closing in Minnesota and Wisconsin.

Wrapped up talking about politicians crying about politicking in an argument about dueling ballot measures in Wisconsin — similar to La Crosse County — that apparently only want to turn out the vote, which is apparently a bad thing, depending on the measure and the party you represent.
