Recalling the days when the Wisconsin State Legislature was part-time, before air-conditioning and when smoking was allowed. When male legislators at times made sexist statements, and young staffers learned how to handle their new jobs. With candor and insight, Jan Grunewald brings alive the memories from under the dome 'back in the day'. Host Gregory Humphrey and Grunewald offer fond recollections of State Senator Lloyd Kincaid, State Representatives Lary Swoboda, Stan Gruszynski, and Cletus Vanderperren, along with other memorable faces from the past. In a personal closing commentary, Humphrey allows insight into an uplifting moment for democracy at the Capitol.
