Stateside Podcast: Meet the journalists who moonlight as sailors

There are two members of the Detroit Public Television program Great Lakes Now who moonlight as sailors.

This last week, Sandra Svoboda and Ward Detwiler took part in the Bayview Mackinac sailboat race. While they were on different boats, going at different speeds, they both finished up this week and talked with Stateside about the experience and to talk about the sport of sailing.
