    What's Next For Detroit? With Dennis Archer Jr.

    What's Next For Detroit? With Dennis Archer Jr.

    The New Year is a great time to take inventory of what we’ve done and where we’re headed, and I like to talk to Dennis Archer Jr.,the CEO of Ignition Media Group and the president of Archer Corporate Services ahead of the Detroit Policy Conference that’s coming up this Wednesday, January 29.
    We touch on a variety of topics including transit, education, development, the focus going forward on the neighborhoods, and why Archer doesn’t like the word “comeback” when it comes to Detroit.
    Archer is also the chair of the conference, with speakers like Dug Song, who has gotten more visibly involved in policy and such since selling his company, Duo Security, to Cisco. Actor Hill Harper, who owns the Roasting Plant in downtown Detroit and bought a house in the city.
    The suburbs are in, too. Oakland County Executive David Coulter is speaking. A statewide perspective from Lieutenant-Governor Garlin Gilchrist.
    I could go on, but here’s a link to everything if you want to know more or want to go.

    Vegan And Vegetarian Restaurants Plus 5 Things To Know Around Metro Detroit

    Vegan And Vegetarian Restaurants Plus 5 Things To Know Around Metro Detroit

    On today’s show:
    Last week on this show we told you how a capitol reporter in Lansing alleged that state Senator Peter Lucido of Shelby Township made a sexist remark to her while she tried to interview him. Now, a fellow state senator of Lucido’s says she’s filing a workplace sexual harassment complaint against him. State Senator Mallory McMorrow tells Crain’s the incident took place in November 2018 after she was first elected to her seat representing the 13th District in Oakland County.
    Recreational marijuana sales seriously lag behind a neighboring state, Wayne County gets its first recreational dispensary, and the city of Detroit pushes their ban out another couple of months saying they’re working on making the licenses more inclusive. 
    The Ilitch organization is trading some parcels of land that will become parks for an extension of development rights near Little Caesar’s Arena. Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan says it’s a good deal.
    Greenspace in downtown Ferndale is closing. So where else is good to get a good vegetarian or vegan bite to eat? Sven’s the healthiest eater among us and a former vegetarian, so he gives his picks.
    Detroit is apparently a place people want to move, and it’s, according to Storage Space, “Perfect for hipsters.”
    There’s a contest for a large-scale public sculpture outside of the TCF Center downtown. Here’s how to enter: https://artist.callforentry.org/festivals_unique_info.php?ID=7348

    Your No Auto Show In January Autos Roundup With Eric Trytko

    Your No Auto Show In January Autos Roundup With Eric Trytko

    Today on your Daily Detroit, we’re talking all things autos. After all, it’s usually at this time of year when everyone’s in town for the North American International Auto Show.
    Although the big Detroit show is in the summer now, have no fear.
    We thought we’d fill your tank with some updates on cool car tech from the Consumer Electronics Show, talk about the almost-sure reintroduction of the Hummer, the Mustang Mach E, Jeep, saving money when buying a car,  and of course, electric and self-driving cars.
    Our conversation style today will be very similar to when we do one of our bar and restaurant roundups, where we bring in someone who has their head in that stuff all the time. 
    So today, joining us is Eric Trytko. He has years of experience covering and working in the industry, as well as experience as a motorsports announcer.
    You might know him online as Rumblestrip. Find him on Twitter here. As well as YouTube. 
    So enjoy!

    Michigan's Long-Term Substitute Teacher Crisis Plus 6 Things To Know Around Town

    Michigan's Long-Term Substitute Teacher Crisis Plus 6 Things To Know Around Town

    On today's show, Alexandra Schmidt from Bridge Magazine joins us to talk about a new report they released today, "No Substitute: The Public's Agenda To Reduce Michigan's Reliance On Uncertified, Long-Term Substitute Teachers."
    We run through the data and the responses with Schmidt, including:
    50,000 kids are served by long-term, uncertified substitute teachers Enrollment in teaching prep programs in the state is down 70 percent in eight years Average pay is dropping for Michigan teachers This impacts districts across the state, but even more so those that serve people of color as 18 percent of students are minorities but 92 percent of teachers are white Polling shows that Michigan parents are very concerned about all of this. Many people may not know that Michigan does not require any sort of teacher certification for long-term subs. Bridge's polling shows 9 in 10 Michiganders want that to change.
    So what are some of the solutions? We discuss it all.
    We also round up some stories you should know around town:
    Macomb County is looking at becoming a Second Amendment Sanctuary City, with the aim of protecting the ownership of AR-15s and the like
    Recreational Marijuana sales surpass $10 million in the first six weeks
    Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Roseville will be demolished for a self-storage place and retail strip
    Though Livonia is getting a Detroit Rescue Mission Ministries site, it won't be a homeless shelter (read more on Hometownlife)
    Beyond Juicery opens in New Center
    Mister Dips, a Brooklyn burger and soft serve joint, is coming to downtown Detroit behind the Shinola Hotel (more on Eater)

    She's 100% That Reporter

    She's 100% That Reporter

    On today's show, Michigan and Metro Detroit have been talking about the callout by Michigan Advance reporter Allison Donahue of State Senator Peter Lucido, after this exchange, excerpted from her first-person account:
    “You should hang around! You could have a lot of fun with these boys, or they could have a lot of fun with you.”
    The teenagers burst into an Old Boys’ Network-type of laughter, and I walked away knowing that I had been the punchline of their “locker room” talk.
    Except it wasn’t the locker room; it was the Senate chamber. And this isn’t high school. It’s my career. 
    We quickly run through where it stands as of this recording (here's her original, first-person post) and here's Lucido's tweet about it and another story about it.
    Oh, and a national story too.
    But more than the basics  lots of people may know, Shianne dives in and shares about her experiences, and she praises Donahue (with apologies to Lizzo) as "100% That Reporter." 
    And, we touch on the disappointment of a first-run movie theatre project falling through over parking problems. Here's the original Crain's story you should check out and we expand, discuss and break it down. Will this obsession with parking mean we'll never get some things?

    The Throwback Approach Of Third Man Records' New Magazine, Maggot Brain

    The Throwback Approach Of Third Man Records' New Magazine, Maggot Brain

    Detroit lays claim to a rich musical legacy going back decades, including Motown Records, a vibrant jazz scene, techno music and more than one generation of booty-shaking garage rock. But it’s been a while since it was home to an actual music magazine.
    That’s changing with the debut of Maggot Brain, a new full-color quarterly print magazine launched by Third Man Records. That’s the retailer, record press and label founded by Jack White. We speak with the magazine’s editor and longtime music writer, Mike McGonigal.
    You can subscribe here or pick it up at a variety of local stores.
    ALSO:
    Turns out no permits were issued for a piece of Detroit riverfront that collapsed into the waterway. More here.
    And Kermit the Frog is going back on display at the Detroit Institute of Arts after a long hiatus. We have all the green details.

Interesting practical and entertaining

Always at least a few really interesting things, usually more! They don’t waste a lot of time with side conversations, but still casual and entertaining.
