Open Record: Open records 101

Since March 2019, the Open Record team has produced more than 230 new episodes. As we work to produce all new material starting in October, we’re going to spend the next few weeks revisiting some of our favorites. This week, an encore presentation of the episode that – literally – lives up to our name. It’s a crash course in the importance of public records – Open Records 101.

How much do you know about open records? What can records show us and how do you file an open records request? In this episode of Open Record, our FOX6 investigators invite open records attorney Tom Kamenick on the podcast to give listeners a crash course about open records. Kamenick, founder of the law firm 'The Wisconsin Transparency Project,' helps explain the process of filing a request and some of the most misunderstood aspects of the law. In today's 'Off the Record' segment, the team tackles a spooky topic: Halloween candy. Do your favorite (and least favorite) sweets fall in line with the I-Team?
