A deep dive into a politician and his a lucrative friends and family plan starts the show, before ML and Marc test a new beer — and Shawn’s patience. Joe listens while sipping his standard rain water and grain alcohol.
- THE STRAIGHT DOPE: Former Michigan Speaker of the House Lee Chatfield raised $7 million, and sent a lot of it to friends and family. Craig Mauger of The Detroit News followed the money, and tells us where a big chunk of it went.
- No reporter in Michigan is better at digging into political loot than Mauger, but he’s more than a one-trick pony, as his latest report demonstrates.
- Shawn is BACK, and talking about his column about the problem with NFL hiring practices.
- Carl Erickson of Altes Beer comes in to discuss Sportsman, the brand’s newest brew. www.altes.com
- GEEK OF THE WEEK: The National Butterfly Center is closed. We put the wood to the responsible parties.
- ROOM 7609: On the second anniversary of the pandemic we book another China Crisis into the New Wave suite.
