It’s been two months since the country’s longest serving congressman, Michigan’s own John Dingell, passed away.  89.1 WEMU’s Lisa Barry sat down with his wife and the person who currently holds that 12th District Congressional seat Debbie Dingell for an honest and emotional conversation about community, civility, and healing.  

 

In Part One of this interview, they focus on the changing roll of women in the workforce and what impact social media is having on society.

Innovations in enviromental science happen all the time.  However, it has mostly been a male-dominated field.  In this week's "Issues of the Environment," WEMU's David Fair speaks to Liesl Clark, who is president of the Michigan Energy Innovation Business Council, co-founder of 5-Lakes Energy, LLC, and a board member of Advancing Women in Energy, about the need for a diversity of voices in the clean energy sector, especially with a new president about to take office.
