Thanks for checking out City Beat, the half-hour podcast from the team at Urban Milwaukee.

We open the show this week with a discussion of Komatsu Mining’s $285 million plan to build a new campus in Milwaukee’s Harbor District. We also touch on Governor-elect Tony Evers visit to Milwaukee City Hall.

Senator Chris Larson joins the show from the state capitol to discuss the lame duck session and the effect it could have on Evers and Attorney General-elect Josh Kaul. The conversation was recorded Tuesday afternoon before the Senate voted on many of the measures.

We also discuss progress at The Couture, and how the Milwaukee County Board of Supervisors want a seat at the table.

We end the show with a Pedestrian Observation, this week about the potential of desire paths to guide how to build better parks and sidewalks.

The show is recorded live on Tuesday’s at Riverwest Radio. If you want to listen live, tune it to 104.1 FM or Tuesday’s at 3:30 p.m. Or subscribe to the podcast via iTunes or a number of other podcast platforms.
