General Motors' headquarters in Detroit. The company pulled up stakes in Australia and New Zealand this week and killed off its Holden brand of vehicles.

Today on Stateside, General Motors backs further into its comfort zone as it exits some markets around the Pacific Rim. We'll talk about how the company's effort to focus on strengths is playing out. Plus, we talk to comedian Joe Pera about his series that follows a mild-mannered oddball living in Marquette.
