Stateside: Friday, April 22, 2022

Today on Stateside, Michigan Radio’s Rick Pluta joined to talk about Governor Whitmer’s recent push to save the Palisades nuclear power plant. Then, we discussed upcycling plastic waste with a University of Michigan researcher. Plus, a Michigan filmmaker dished on his recent film "Monty and Rose" that follows a loveable pair of piping plovers. To wrap up, April Baer gets into the nitty gritty of Michigan's tick season.
