Around The Corner with John McGivern Previous Broadcasts

Havenwoods (Episode #704)

KQED World: Sun, Mar 24, 2019 -- 9:30 AM

Havenwoods is one of those neighborhoods in Milwaukee that we've always known. We just didn't know it had a name - or so much industry - or so much positive energy - or a bona fide forest! It was a joy to meet everyone in this revitalized area who helped us get to know Havenwoods!

Middleton (Episode #703)

KQED World: Sun, Mar 17, 2019 -- 9:30 AM

Before we showed up in Middleton, we thought this city was started as a suburb of Madison. Wrong. When we got here, we thought that Middleton was divided into the industrial and the neighborhood parts. Not so wrong, but both parts completely impressed us. Never thought we'd say that! Thanks, Middleton!

Appleton (Episode #702)

KQED World: Sun, Mar 10, 2019 -- 9:30 AM

As John said, if the Fox Valley were a state, Appleton would be the capital. Not only is it the largest of the cities in the Fox Valley, Appleton's a large city - period! Energetic, busy, vibrant, loaded with friendly, smart people - it's our kind of place. From now on, in the Around the Corner book, A is for Appleton!

Mequon & Thiensville (Episode #710)

KQED World: Sun, Mar 3, 2019 -- 9:30 AM

A pastor, a rabbi and a Nepalese chef all walk into ... Mequon and/or Thiensville, every day! As do the pharmacy students and staff at Concordia University, a hardware store owner, consignment shop owners, a catering company family, a village president and a mayor. And for four days, John joined them. There was too much to shoot in four days. .. And that's no joke!
