Episode 2: Bill

In 1997, Social Psychology Researcher Arthur Aron conducted a study on human connection.

Almost 20 years later it became popularized as The 36 Questions That Lead To Love.

So here in Milwaukee, we chose 8 strangers from two of our longest streets to answer these questions — on camera.

It’s time to meet your neighbor, and maybe even love them too.

Episode 2 of our new series National & North takes us to North Ave & 63rd St, where we meet Bill.

Bill is an 80-year-old devout Catholic whose story is lovingly shaped by his 50-year marriage to his late wife Kathy, who passed away from cancer on New Years Eve, 2009.

After retiring from a long career as a trial lawyer, Bill gives back to his community by volunteering at a homeless shelter and tutoring at a learning center for adults who have dropped out of school.




My wife Kathy is the best thing that ever happened to me.

Now, get to know Bill even deeper by exploring the audio players below.  He responds to questions not answered in the video.
