At Stateside, we love talking about Michigan history.

We've looked at the invention of snowboarding (first known as snurfing); why a small town held a funeral for a bunch of pizzas, and the University of Michigan student who broke baseball's color barrier 64 years before Jackie Robinson.

And now, we turn to you!

Is there anything weird, unusual, or interesting from Michigan’s history that you’re curious about? Do you have any life experiences you think historians would get a kick out of? Do you want to fact check that urban legend your uncle told you about at Thanksgiving?

We want to hear your questions and ideas for history stories you want to hear on Stateside.

Leave us a voicemail at 734-764-7840 or leave your questions and ideas below, and Stateside might help satisfy your curiosity.
