The Wisconsin Museum of Broadcasting is definitely one of my favorite clients. Not just because they’re a great organization with great ideas, but because they have realized those ideas so well.
I’ve written before about how much I like this online museum. Now, thanks to the must-watch-TV event of Recall Season here in Wisconsin, I get to write about it again.
It’s cool that the debate between Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker and Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett will be aired live throughout the state, thanks to the efforts of the WBA Foundation. And it’s awesome that this debate will soon take its place in the special Political Debates exhibit that the museum maintains. What’s really special, though, is that journalists and history buffs and political junkies can prep for the debate by watching the PREVIOUS gubernatorial debate between these same two candidates. That’s right—Tom Barrett and Scott Walker debated each other in 2010, and the museum has preserved that debate in its entirety and made it available to the world.
Just go to the museum, navigate to the Political Debates section, and click on the 2010 debate. Happy watching!
