UW-La Crosse political science professor, Dr. Anthony Chergosky, in studio ranking Donald Trump’s VP picks and discussing how Wheel of Fortune is both not political and best for politics, as Pat Sajak has last show.

Beginning of the show was mostly about Wheel of Fortune. But, not so much it being Sajak’s last show, but on Vanna White continuing and how she has the best job in history — though she apparently does more than reveal letters. We also got a take about “the Wheel” from WIZM’s gameshow expert Brad Williams, who has been on Jeopardy. And we talked about how the show’s politics and “Hollywood” politics in general.

After that (16:30), we got political, starting first about Wisconsin Attorney General Josh Kaul charging some in the state’s false elector scheme to overturn the 2020 election.

And, the second half of the show (22:40) started with the presidential debates coming up, before we wrapped up with Chergosky ranking the Top 8 vice presidential picks, including some OLIs (outside looking ins).
