Stateside: Wednesday, Feb. 16, 2022

To kick off today’s episode of Stateside, Michigan Radio’s Nisa Khan and Laura Weber Davis recap what we know so far about which candidates are running and where in Michigan’s newly remapped congressional districts. Biba Adams and Natasha Miller unpack the Detroit origins of a term made popular well beyond the city through hip hop: “what up doe.” And, Dr. Trevon Logan and Anna Gifty Okopu-Agyeman discuss Michigan State University economist Lisa Cook’s nomination to the Federal Reserve and disparities for Black women in economics.
