The Great Lakes are surely one of the state's greatest assets. On today's show: we ask some key questions.

What are the biggest threats to the Lakes, and how should we manage them?

And, we meet a man who wants to help local Michigan breweries - one can at a time.

We also speak with Caitlin Lynch of Bloomfield Hills. Last month she realized a dream by making her debut at the Metropolitan Opera House in New York in Francesca di Rimini.

But we start the show with a look at your health. If you to live a long and healthy life, where you live in Michigan matters.

This week, Bridge Magazine reports on a fact we all know - health and wellness is not evenly spread out in our state. No where is it more starkly illustrated than the neighboring counties of Washtenaw and Wayne. Living on the right side of that county line means a longer life with better health.

We spoke with contributing Bridge Magazine writer Ron French.
