Next Up
alternate Wednesdays

Next Best Thing is now Next Up! Next Best Thing was intended to be a limited-run commentary focused on ways to stay connected digitally during stay-at-home orders. It will continue on, but as a public service announcement about local events. Every other Wednesday, KMUW's Jordan Kirtley will take a look at what's coming up next in the area.
