Stateside: Monday, Dec. 18, 2023

Today on Stateside, Colin Jackson and Alyssa McMurtry joined us to recap the highlights from Michigan's state politics this year. It's the first time in 40 years that Democrats controlled both houses of the legislature and the governor's office. Wrapping up today's show, we re-aired of the first episode of our pizza podcast, Dough Dynasty! This first episode covers the Domino's origin story, pizza's Italian roots, its subsequent popularization in America, and more.
