On episode FORTY-ONE of Let the Bird Fly! Wade and Mike have the great privilege of welcoming Sharon Patterson into the “studio” for a wide-ranging conversation that wanders through questions ranging from journalism and culture to faith and generational changes. One common theme throughout the discussion seems to be a story rooted in Milwaukee, WI. Mrs. Patterson was the only of her siblings born in Wisconsin, the rest having transplanted from Louisiana. This provides her with a unique insider-outsider perspective of a community that she’s has always called home. It is this perspective, coupled with a talent for telling stories, that results in a fascinating from conversation that covers her time on the radio, through her success with the PBS series Black Nouveau, to her current role in development at Wisconsin Lutheran College. We are extremely grateful to Sharon for her willingness to join us on this episode. We hope you will enjoy this episode as much as we enjoyed recording it.
