Stateside: Friday, Dec. 17, 2021

The word "state" on a blue background and then "side" flipped vertically on a green background. Underneath, it reads "Weekdays at 3 and 9pm"

Today on Stateside, we checked on resettlement efforts for the hundreds of Afghan refugees moving to mid-Michigan. Then, a new podcast invites us to imagine a world where mass-incarceration is a thing of the past. And, Traverse City photojournalist John Russell talks about capturing the community in photo for nearly five decades.
