ArtPod is chock-full of summer awesomeness.

We’re putting our own special ArtPod spin on three big summer crowd-pleasers.

The end-of-school concerts.

The new indie movie with all the buzz.

And your own private guide to craft cocktails in Michigan.

Hey, that counts as art. Right?

First off, the end of school is so close, you can taste it.

We’ve got a story about what a high school orchestra has to get through before they’re free, and it involves some heavy stuff.

Then, we fill you in on a documentary getting Michigan insiders all excited. It’s not just a sneak peek, it’s an in-depth look at the people and families you won’t see in this film.

Then, Lester Graham, our tireless investigative reporter, embarks on what may be the toughest assignment of his career: drink his way around the state and then talk about it.

But really, we’ve got the skinny on what’s driving this artsy-indie craft cocktail scene, and what you need to know to before you order your next ice cold drink.

So even though it’s thundering every 30 minutes, and the humidity is like a horrible warm bath every time you step outside, summer really is here. And ArtPod is your summer kickoff guide.
