For the final week of her broadcasting career, Cynthia Canty lined up conversations with the people she says would be guests at her dream dinner party. First up are Gleaves Whitney, director of the Hauenstein Center for Presidential Studies at Grand Valley State University, and Michigan State University economist Charley Ballard. They talked about how they both ended up in academia, the power of the liberal arts, and what's changed since they started in their fields.
