Stateside for Thursday, August 27, 2015

Today on Stateside:

  • It's no secret that voters here in Michigan and across the country are angry and cynical about the notorious gridlock in Washington that has brought the country to its knees with budget showdowns. Daniel Howes tells us it's time for politicians to get serious.
  • He's spent most of the summer practicing with his football team at Detroit Community High in Brightmoor, but when Jai'Shaun Isom wasn't on the field, he was in school, learning how to make a radio story.
  • John U. Bacon talks with us about his new book, Endzone: The Rise, Fall, and Return of Michigan Football.
  • Economics Nobel Laureate Edmund Phelps is concerned that if America will fail to produce real innovators if it continues to rely on government incentives, business school training, and financial institutions for capital. He joins us today to talk about bringing creativity back to American education.
  • Executive Director of the Michigan Association of Chiefs of Police sits down with us to explain law enforcement's concerns with legal marijuana.
