  • A recent legal case in Cass County, Michigan is raising questions about HIV disclosure laws in Michigan. We talk with Trevor Hoppe, sociologist of sexuality, HIV, and the law at the University at Albany-SUNY about the case.
  • State regulators want to find out where lead water pipes are and how many are left in the ground. Michigan Radio's Lindsey Smith has been following the story and the results are posted in this handy map.
  • How a vibrant Flint neighborhood was leveled in the name of "urban renewal”. What can we learn from St. John Street in Flint? We talk with Charles Winfrey about the community he grew up in.
  • We discuss the history of Enbridge Line 5 with Bruce Trudgen, retired automotive engineer who helped to build the oil pipline under the Straits of Mackinac more than 60 years ago.
  • What do we know about the construction of oil pipelines? And what do we need to understand about how they're made and used and maintained? Pipeline expert, Richard Kuprewicz joined us to answer those questions.
