Host Angela Fitzgerald and the Wisconsin Life crew have crisscrossed many Wisconsin highways as they sought out new experiences to see and try.

Read on to learn more about what’s in store!

Series Producer Kelly Saran, left, and host Angela Fitzgerald record an upcoming segment on Wisconsin Public Radios Central Time.

The Season 7 premiere, “Headfirst,” sees Angela visit the yards of Fincantieri Bay Shipbuilding (watch the Facebook video!) to see how the legacy of shipbuilding continues in Sturgeon Bay. Then she introduces stories of a maritime archaeologist from Madison, an Indian classical dancer from Middleton and a pair of Irish Road Bowlers from La Crosse, as well as an animated tale about the jitters that come with the first day of every school year.

In addition to a fantastic array of stories from around the state, each episode opens as Angela creates some Wisconsin memories of her own at unique locations around the state.
