Stateside: Thursday, Nov. 16, 2023

On this episode of Stateside, we detailed the tentative agreement between the Detroit 3 and the UAW, how the UAW's vote to ratify this agreement works and why the vote is so close. Then, we discussed the push for all football stadiums, including indoor stadiums, to have natural turf. Next, we heard from a West Michigan musician who's using electricity from plants to make music. Concluding today's show, Marvin’s Marvelous Mechanical Museum may be demolished to make way for a new Meijer — we covered efforts to stop this from happening.
