Stateside for Friday, Jan. 29, 2016
- There have been some new developments in a fairly complicated story we aired recently. Michigan Public Radio’s Jake Neher reported on parents how lost custody of their child because of felony drug charges. But those charges might have been due to some political pressure on a state crime lab.

- Now that Stateside is on Fridays, we thought we’d offer a toast to the weekend. Every once in a while Tammy Coxen with Tammy’s Tastings will tell us about a Michigan related drink. The first is a classic cocktail called The Last Word.
- We’ve all been hearing a lot of anti-immigrant rhetoric recently. Everything from banning all Muslims from the country to halting the flow of Syrian refugees. This week, Karen Korematsu has been in Michigan sharing her father’s story from a similar time of fear and confusion.
- Joshua Davis has been a staple in Michigan’s music scene for 15 years. He gained national attention last year when he ended up being one of the finalists on NBC's "The Voice." Michigan Radio’s Emily Fox interviewed Joshua Davis about "The Voice" and his music. He’ll be performing on Saturday at the Ann Arbor Folk Festival.
