Stateside: Thursday, April 13, 2023

Today on the show, an update on the court battle over the legality of the drug mifepristone. An appeals court ruled on Wednesday that the drug can remain available - including for medication abortions – but not without limitations. Also, the epic adventures of Verlen Kruger, the Michigan man who paddled over 100,000 miles in his lifetime. And, as Ford sets up an EV battery plant in Marshall locals remain divided over whether to welcome it, or ward it off.
