Ari Weinzweig

Zingerman's co-founder Ari Weinzweig has written several books and pamphlets in recent years about a variety of topics, mostly having to do with improving ourselves and our perspectives, which can lead to better relationships, whether personal or business-related.

WEMU's Lisa Barry talks to Weinzweig about his latest pamphlet called “Humility: A Humble, Anarchistic Inquiry.”


On the next edition of “Modern Aging,” WEMU’s Lisa Barry and Dr. Theresa Reid talk about how to remain visible and relevant in an ageist society.

Michigan State Government

Gretchen Whitmer is only the second female governor in Michigan history, and, as the mother of two daughters, knows the importance of strong female leaders.

She spoke to 89.1 WEMU's Lisa Barry about improving history for women during this month dedicated to highlighting the contributions of women in history and contemporary society.

Glass ceilings are being broken in many industries that have long been male-dominated.  To this day, there are businesses built on what many perceive to be a man’s job.  For instance, who do you picture when you think of a barber?  In our latest installment of “Hidden in Plain Sight,” 89.1 WEMU’s Jorge Avellan reports on female barbers in Ann Arbor who are helping change that perception.
