Human Powered

Human Powered is a show about how people make places better. In our first season, we explore Wisconsin together to meet real people and hear in-depth stories that we hope leave you feeling closer to your neighbors and inspired by where you live. Brought to you by Love Wisconsin and Wisconsin Humanities and produced by Field Noise Soundworks.


In our first season, we are traveling around the state of Wisconsin to see how big ideas and everyday people are coming together for extraordinary change. In this preview, you’ll hear from some of those people: Arijit Sen, Caroline Gottschalk Druske, Rachel Monaco-Wilcox, and Tracey Robertson.
