Introducing ‘MichMash’ — WDET’s New Segment Breaking Down Statewide Issues

WDET Digital

MichMash is WDET’s new weekly series in which hosts Jake Neher and Cheyna Roth “un-jumble” important and sometimes under-the-radar statewide issues that affect you.

We’re going to talk you through them and help you to understand why these things matter to you,” says Roth.

You can hear MichMash on Fridays at 4:45 p.m. and 6:45 p.m. on WDET’s All Things Considered and during WDET’s Weekend Edition on Sunday.

Neher and Roth have been looking at these issues for several months. Thanks to listeners and social media followers, those conversations now have a name.

We want to thank everyone who helped us with that, because naming stuff is hard,” says Neher.

We think ‘MichMash’ encompasses our goal to take on issues that aren’t easily understood, to do it in a fun and/or engaging way, and to focus on statewide issues that affect most or all Michiganders.”

The first edition of MichMash looks at regional transit here in Southeast Michigan, and how next week’s Mackinac Policy Conference could provide an opportunity to break the impasse.
