Trash - mostly gossip no real news

You’d think a show centered on Michigan would tell you Michigan news... mostly no! Unless you count Sen. Stabanow’s opinión of Trump “news”, or Gov. Whitmer’s reaction to Stabinow “news” and not just plain gossip.
It’s just a show of some middle aged guy interviewing people talking about parks, bee, movie productions, all existing OUTSIDE of Michigan, and other boring retirement ads before actually sprinkling in a note on one new law passed in Michigan.
The guy has his boyfriend on the radio occasionally to talk about national, non-Michigan related news, because he can’t talk directly to audience, and they need to comment on why Trump disliking Goodyear is newsworthy and will cost him the election (without even addressing Trump’s argument?), as if politicians aren’t allowed to have opinions anymore as long as there’s an R next to their names.
Maybe I’m projecting a little, bit why not talk about actual news, dude? Michigan’s a big place. Michigan News from MLive (a BETTER podcast for Michigan) said Whitmer just passed a deal to help relieve Flint water survivors. We have riots in Lansing and some other cities, except Detroit which is actually peaceful. We’re passing all kinds of new laws, but this pH level 15 basic of a man won’t cover any of it and instead whines about the President having an opinion because feelings.
Would recommend he looks for actual news and stories of people, events, and policies in Michigan, not just beer companies, but until you do I’m listening to MLive.
