Stateside: Thursday, Feb. 29, 2024

On today's Stateside, we heard reactions to Tuesday's Presidential primary results from those behind the "Vote Uncommitted" movement. Over 100,000 Democratic primary voters selected that option. Then, we learned about a farm conference occurring in Ann Arbor this weekend. It's bringing together agricultural thought leaders to discuss strategies for strengthening local and regional food systems using the "farm stop model." Concluding the show, we spoke with a "MexiRican Grand Rapidian" whose new book chronicles the history of the growing Spanish speaking communities that have made West Michigan their home for generations.
