Today, on Stateside, the mayor of Windsor, Ontario has a creative solution for getting excess Detroit vaccine doses to Canadians: a vaccine clinic in the Detroit-Windsor tunnel. Plus, a historian from the Little Traverse Bay Bands of Odawa Indians talks about the enduring legacy of Tecumseh, the Shawnee leader who united Native tribes against settler expansion. And, we dig into the job market during the pandemic recovery.
