Today on Stateside:

  • It’s been a wild ride on Wall Street this week, and it’s only Tuesday! USA Today reporter Nathan Bomey joins us to talk about how China’s economic well-being can have a huge impact on U.S. companies.
  • Anita Posey and Monica Jayner give us a look at what life can be like for women behind bars.
  • Almost six years ago, Michigan’s only women’s prison settled a huge lawsuit after multiple female inmates were raped. Changes have been made, but have they caused women to trade privacy for safety?
  • The Little Traverse Bay Bands of Odawa Indians is suing the state of Michigan over reservation boundaries. The trip filed a federal complaint last week in an effort to reaffirm sovereign powers they say they are guaranteed under an 1855 treaty.
  • When it comes to the issue of marijuana – to legalize or not to legalize – Michigan is pretty much where Colorado was not that long ago. Ben Markus sits down with us to talk about what has and what hasn’t changed for the state since legalization.
