Stateside: Tuesday, March 1, 2022

Today on Stateside, we hear from two members of Congress from Michigan — Democrat Haley Stevens and Republican Bill Huizenga — as they detail their stances on the U.S. response to the conflict in Ukraine and offer insights into tonight's State of the Union address. Plus, an installment of Issues & Ales focuses on how COVID has impacted Michigan education and how it alters the future. And an essay on the choices we make to de-stress.
