Despite the pawpaw's tropical flavor, the fruit tree is actually native to temperate climates like Michigan.

Today on Stateside, sports commentator John U. Bacon on his new book. It explores the leadership lessons he learned coaching a notoriously bad high school hockey team. And, we offer up some seasonal love for the pawpaw with a pocket cookbook for a Michigan forager favorite. Plus, what to look for in a maddeningly tight car market—and when things might ease up.
