Stateside: Thursday, March 9, 2023

General Motors recently announced they're offering voluntary buyouts and voluntary layoffs to salaried workers. We talked to Detroit News reporter Kalea Hall about why the automaker is looking to shrink its workforce. Then, we heard about a mother-son duo in northern Michigan who are bringing their non-alcoholic spirits to market. Plus, Judge Greg Mathis joined us to reflect on his decades-long career in television — and the Detroit upbringing that got him there. We ended with a look into the The Alluvion, a new community-minded music venue in Traverse City.
