Former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm, shown here in 2012, gave a toned down speech in Philadelphia Thursday that focused on unifiying Americans.

Democrats made history this week in at their convention in Philadelphia. And as Hillary Clinton became the first female presidential nominee from a major U.S. party, Michigan got a share of the national spotlight.

Michigan Radio's Steve Carmody is in Philadelphia covering the convention. He joined me on Morning Edition to discuss:

  • The Michigander who isn't a politician, but still got a prime speaking slot Thursday night
  • Former Gov. Jennifer Granholm's speech and how it compared to her fiery address in 2012
  • What Hillary Clinton had to say about Flint and Michigan in her acceptance speech
