  • Is it true Detroit residents city have no options for fresh foods and groceries? We discussed why that myth prevails and what resident grocers are doing to stop it.
  • Copper mining has played a huge part in Michigan's history. We talked with author Bill Carter about his new book, "Boom, Bust, Boom: A Story About Copper, the Metal That Runs the World."
  • When college athletes face depression, what can teams and colleges do to help? We talked to a former Wolverine football player about how he turned his battle with depression into a way to help other student athletes.
  • Finally, did you know the tri-color traffic light was the brainchild of a Detroit police officer?
