In the new program premiering 7 p.m. Tuesday, March 5 on Wisconsin Public Television, Celebrated Wisconsin author and humorist Michael Perry looks back on his "Clodhopper" tales of life in Wisconsin with an eye toward the ways his stories of the past connect us to the future.

Checking in from north of Wisconsin's Highway 64, Perry reflects on the people and places that shaped his life, while sharing stories relatable to every Wisconsinite. He muses on woodpiles and farm auctions, chicken sheds and picking rock. And, of course, tractors.

Funding for Michael Perry: How Ya Doin' is provided by Ron and Colleen Weyers, Stanley J. Cottrill Fund, the Focus Fund for Wisconsin Programming, and Friends of Wisconsin Public Television.
