The week on the pod, the gang welcomes County Supervisor Jason Haas for a quest to defend and invest in Milwaukee County arts and culture organizations. We learn about why he is such a great advocate for the County's arts and culture organizations and how in the last two weeks as the Chair of the County's Finance Committee, he was able to both defend against proposed cuts to County funding for the arts and secure CARES Act funds for our region's arts groups.
