    Floods, Storms, and Fires...What's the Best Way to Respond When Your House Gets Hit?

    Floods, Storms, and Fires...What's the Best Way to Respond When Your House Gets Hit?

    Given the massive amounts of flooding we have seen this summer, Craig thought it wise to talk to some professional restoration experts on how best to react if and when your home falls victim to floods, fire, tree limbs, etc.   His guests are Brian Thomas and Justin Miller of Paul Davis Restoration of East Michigan.  They discuss mistakes people make in their desire to restore their home, how to avoid overpaying for the work, and which projects are most important to tackle first.  They also discuss the team they sent to assist in the cleanup after Hurricane Ida hit Louisiana this summer.

    The Lions Have A Knack For Losing Creatively - This Week is No Exception

    The Lions Have A Knack For Losing Creatively - This Week is No Exception

    Craig's and his guests Pat Batcheller of WDET, and Jeff Wattrick (formerly of WDET) have watched a lot of Detroit Lions football together over the years.   They have watched a lot of very strange endings to Lions games.  Sunday's game was no exception...the three of them break down the heartbreaker loss to the Baltimore Ravens at Ford Field, which ended on a record setting 66 yard field goal that should probably not even have been attempted in the first place.   It doesn't get more Lions than this.

    Conversations from Mackinac: Which Tools Does Michigan Need to Attract Business and Investment?

    Conversations from Mackinac: Which Tools Does Michigan Need to Attract Business and Investment?

    Craig's guest is Mark Burton, partner and co-leader of the  Economic Development Incentives Group at Honigman, a post he took in March.  Prior to joining Honigman, Mark Burton was the CEO of the Michigan Economic Development Corp., which works to attract businesses and investment to the state, and tries to create a good environment for businesses to thrive.  The two discuss which tools are emerging as the most effective in luring companies to Michigan, and what we have learned about past incentive programs that didn't always live up to expectations.   Things like community benefits agreements, employment guarantees, and environmental impact assessments are much more common today than even a decade ago.   They also discuss the importance of regional cooperation and avoiding a so called "race to the bottom" of tax incentives.

    An Update from the Mackinac Conference, and We Also Break Down the Lions Latest Loss

    An Update from the Mackinac Conference, and We Also Break Down the Lions Latest Loss

    Today, Craig has a two guest show...first, a conversation with Nancy Kaffer of the Detroit Free Press, who is attending this year's Mackinac Conference Policy hosted by the Detroit Regional Chamber.    The annual conference brings together Michigan's leaders in politics, business, non-profits, and the media for what the Chamber claims is a rare opportunity to share ideas, network, make deals, and come up with solutions to Michigan's problems.   
    The two discussed the main theme of this year's conference, "Reimagining a Healthy Michigan".  The two also preview planned speeches from Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan and Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer.  As expected, much of the discussion is about how the state will continue to deal with and recover from the pandemic, and how it might lead to changes in the way we approach everything from public health, jobs, community investment, and equitable development.    

    Then, Craig is joined by Pat Batcheller, Morning Anchor at WDET, Detroit Public Radio for their weekly chat about the weekend in Football, especially our struggling Detroit Lions.
