This is the first U Place program to air which was recorded using our new remote webcam kit. The kit allows PBS Wisconsin to record presenters at home or in their place of work, and features a laptop, web camera, microphone and small lights. This presentation was recorded in collaboration with our long-time U Place partner, Tom Zinnen, director of UW-Madison’s Wednesday Nite @ the Lab lecture series.
This program may also be viewed on or before Feb. 1 at pbswisconsin.org/uplace .
