Stateside: Monday, Sept. 26, 2022
Today on Stateside, we heard more about a new report from MuckRock that found an alarming amount of childcare deserts, areas with more children than available childcare, and how the phenomenon could affect Michigan families. Plus, two editors joined to discuss their new book that examines the gradual revival of Michigan’s storied River Rouge. Then, we spoke with Murtaza Ahmadi, a young Afghani man who came to Michigan after Kabul fell and recently started his studies at Olivet College.
