Today on Stateside:

The Kalamazoo Promise is working, so why is it only in Kalamazoo? Jeff Degraff looks at what good the Promise has done, and tells about how much further it could be taken.

The University of Michigan has just opened a brand new testing facility for autonomous vehicles. Kevin DeSouza sits down to talk to us about the future and impact of self-driving vehicles.

With all this talk of autonomous vehicles, Stateside producer Mike Blank takes a minute to break down the relationship between cars, computers and humans.

University of Michigan medical historian Dr. Howard Markel talks about one of the most determined and important women in medical science: Rosalyn Yalow.

U.S. Sen. Gary Peters has often reached out through the phone line to talk with us here on Stateside, but today he joins us in-studio to discuss petroleum coke, the Iran nuclear deal, the Export-Import Bank of the United States, and life as the only Democratic freshman in the senate.

HOUR Detroit Magazine’s Chris Cook gives us the low down on low-alcohol wine with full flavor and why we haven’t been able to get it in the Midwest.
