A new WPR podcast spotlights some of the nearly 15000 Cuban immigrants who were sent to Fort McCoy in Sparta, Wisconsin as part of the Mariel Boatlift. Uprooted tells stories of boat journeys, life at Fort McCoy, and a longing to return to Cuba 40 years later.


The show is hosted by Wisconsin Life’s Maureen McCollum and UW-La Crosse Professor Omar Granados. They join on on today’s program to share these stories and shed light on the making of the podcast.
