UW-L’s Wilken on potholes in Roman times, living with a dolphin named Peter, and the “fake” moon landing
UW-La Crosse Outreach Specialist Spencer Wilken in the WIZM studio for La Crosse Talk PM on Monday with another segment of breaking news from decades ago — this time about living with a dolphin — as well as whether the Romans had potholes and her very popular Reddit thread on the “fake” moon landing.

First, however, Wilken listened intently I unwound from being off a week, and the news of Wisconsin Secretary of State resigning, as well as my daylight saving spiel.
Then we got into roundabout-construction season-pothole talk and how the Romans may have solved that dilemma, while La Crosse endures three roundabouts going up on the south side, while dodging craters in the roads.
After that, some very weird news from the 1960s about dolphin research, taking what must have been a lot of LSD and subjecting a woman and a dolphin named Peter to living together in some kind of apartment.
Lastly, we brought up Wilken’s very popular Reddit thread on the moon landing, as she prepares to get her doctorate in astrophysics.
