Stateside: Tuesday, Aug. 16, 2022

Today on Stateside, Dodge is retiring their Charger and Challenger models. Is this the end of the muscle car era? We posed that question to car enthusiast and journalist Sonari Glinton. Then, students and faculty at Grand Valley State University spent the summer creating an inclusive space for Indigenous students on campus. We spoke with a professor and a student working on the project. Plus, digging at a West Michigan construction site turns up something exciting: a mastodon skeleton. And, finally, an update on the water main break that’s still disrupting service for thousands of Michiganders.
