Stateside for Tuesday, Nov. 10, 2015

Today on Stateside:

  • Over the past few days, thousands of federal inmates were released from prison due to a change in the way the federal government sentences drug criminals. Brandon Sample gives us a closer look at the largest one-time release of federal prisoners.

  • The Rovi Media Collection is the largest media collection in the country: CDs, DVDs, and video games. All entertainment, and now all in the care of Michigan State University.

    Interview with Clifford Haka, director of MSU Libraries.


  • Forty years ago today, the Edmund Fitzgerald sank into Lake Superior. A new documentary celebrates the life of the ship and the impact it had on the people around it.

  • After several years of being throttled back, Michigan's film incentive program was eliminated in July. That forced the Michigan Film Office to cast a wider net and broaden its focus. It is now known as the Michigan Film & Digital Media Office.

  • A tiny insect that has the power to cause some big problems for farmers has turned up on several organic farms in Sanilac County. Zsofia Szendrei sits down with us today to talk about the swede midge.
