  • John U. Bacon joins us to talk Lions, Spartans, Wolverines, and Red Wings is this week's sports roundup.
     
  • For decades men have considered bars, clubs, locker rooms and golf courses open territory in which they can ask for introductions and guidance to advance their businesses and careers. Carolyn Cassin sits down with us to explain how women could benefit from an "old boy's club" of their own.
     
  • Wearing exotic uniforms, wielding sabers, riding camels, or driving tiny cars: You know, just another day at the club. Bill Loomis walks us through the history of fraternal societies in Detroit.
     
  • Flint is going back to Detroit water following a lead-poisoning fiasco. Michigan Radio's Steve Carmody reports.
     
  • There's a lot of attention focused on the Enbridge Line 5 oil pipeline running along the bottom of the Straits of Mackinac and the damage it could cause if it ruptures. But Keith Matheny has found the Coast Guard is more concerned about an above-ground stretch of Line 5.
