For 40 years, Dr. Peter Glatz put dental instruments inside the mouths of patients in Illinois, and now that he's retired, he's providing a different type of "filling."  At the age of 67, Dr. Glatz is staying in his "Bertha Bus" in Ann Arbor while helping out on a local farm and using his passion to cook and create at area restaurants.  He tells WEMU's Lisa Barry about his culinary journey.

With over a billion dollars in losses statewide this month alone in the Michigan restaurant industry and hundreds of workers furloughed under orders banning in restaurant customers, WEMU's Lisa Barry checks in with Zingerman's co-owner Ari Weinzweig to find out how that successful Ann Arbor community of food-related businesses is holding up as the ordered closures to diners continues.

This week, "Art and Soul" is about the art of well being.  WEMU’s Lisa Barry talks with Maggie Bayless, founder and co-managing partner of ZingTrain, part of the Zingerman’s community of businesses, about her volunteer work with “Better Angels.”  It's a national organization founded after the last election with the intention of decreasing the amount of polarization between the two ends of the political spectrum.

There are many things we can do to take care of our health from eating right to exercising, but there is growing research on the therapeutic benefits of laughter in medicine.

We spoke with Ann Arbor Integrative Medicine Dr. Jay Sandweiss, who is sharing his knowledge of how a daily dose of “mindful laughter” can prevent and improve at least 21 different aspects of your health as part of the Zingtrain Speaker Series on Wednesday, May 24th.
