Stateside for Thursday, August 20, 2015

Today on Stateside:

  • Michigan Congressman Dan Kildee is urging people to contact the Canadian Ministry of the Environment about a proposed nuclear waste storage facility near Lake Huron. 

  • There's less than a month to go before the clock runs out and contracts between the UAW and the Detroit Three automakers expire. Detroit News business columnist Daniel Howes talks with us about the delicate balance that both sides are trying to pull off.

  • Michigan Radio's sports commentator John U. Bacon talks Tigers, Brady Hoke's radio interview, and where things stand with the NLRB union ruling. 

  • Ah, the campaign song. There’s just something about pop tunes that politicians can’t resist, and University of Michigan musicologist Mark Clague tells us that’s been true in America pretty much since the beginning.

  • Robin Miner-Swartz discusses the state of giving in mid-Michigan, the role of community foundations, and her idea for boosting non-profit funding

  • When we talk about PTSD, the conversation generally lands on the military. But that misses a large group of men and women who could be struggling with post-traumatic stress disorder: our first-responders
