Stateside: Thursday, Feb. 23, 2023

Today on Stateside, an update on the ice storm that has left hundreds of thousands of Michiganders without power. We also heard about the public benefits baked into a redevelopment deal for District Detroit. Then, we revisited the history of Great Lakes sea shanties sung by Black sailors. Plus, a conversation with one Grand Rapids native who took a deep dive into Wikipedia during lockdown— and turned what she found into comedy gold.
