What’s the future for Detroit & Michigan’s all important automotive sector?

This week Sven Gustafson’s guest across the table is Glenn Stevens, the Executive Director of MichAuto and we do a deep dive ahead of the MichAuto Summit on December 5 & 6.

Getting into the weeds is what we do and it’s a fascinating conversation if you’re connected to this industry or want Detroit’s economy to move forward. We touch on the auto industry, autonomous vehicles, venture capital investment, and what the future of mobility looks like.

Talent is a huge piece of that puzzle, and automotive and mobility companies are looking for Detroit’s best and brightest.

The summit at the College for Creative Studies will go further than our conversation tonight, and if you’re interested in working in the auto industry you might want to check it out. 

Thanks to Queens Bar for being host this week and Podcast Detroit for all of their support. http://www.podcastdetroit.com

PODCAST: The Godmother Of House Music, Stacey “Hotwaxx” Hale http://www.dailydetroit.com/2017/10/27/podcast-godmother-house-music-stacey-hotwaxx-hale/ http://www.dailydetroit.com/2017/10/27/podcast-godmother-house-music-stacey-hotwaxx-hale/#respond Fri, 27 Oct 2017 21:28:53 +0000 http://www.dailydetroit.com/?p=39304

What is the difference between Techno and House? What is some of the history behind these iconic, Detroit made sounds? Who is the first female DJ to spin this stuff on the radio?

Answers to those questions and more are from Sven Gustafson’s guest, Stacey “Hotwaxx” Hale, also known as the Godmother of House Music.

She’s been spinning in the scene since 1982, and now she’s not only playing music, but also giving back through her work at the Detroit Institute of Music Educations and Black Women Rock.

She has a new radio show on Red Bull Radio, and she stopped by for an episode of the Daily Detroit Happy Hour. Gotta say, it was an honor to interview such a local legend.

LISTEN: Talking The Witch Of Delray, Detroit Murder Mysteries And History With Author Karen Dybis http://www.dailydetroit.com/2017/10/18/listen-talking-witch-delray-detroit-murder-mysteries-history-author-karen-dybis/ http://www.dailydetroit.com/2017/10/18/listen-talking-witch-delray-detroit-murder-mysteries-history-author-karen-dybis/#respond Wed, 18 Oct 2017 06:20:34 +0000 http://www.dailydetroit.com/?p=39011

Today, we step back to Detroit in the 1930s at a bar that was open (well, as an ice cream shop during the prohibition part) to talk to Karen Dybis.

She’s an author of a few books, but her latest promises from what we’ve seen to be a great read. “The Witch of Delray: Rose Veres & Detroit’s Infamous 1930s Murder Mystery” is a true crime book that’s set in Detroit’s Delray neighborhood.

Dybis is a former newspaper reporter, and utilized that background as well as her colorful style paint a picture of a city and a boarding house where, as she says, renters walk in and pine boxes come out.

So join Sven Gustafson for a great conversation on the back patio of Nancy Whiskey’s.

To pre-order the book that comes out October 30 from The History Press on Amazon, go here: https://www.amazon.com/Witch-Delray-Detroits-Infamous-Mystery/dp/1467137545 or support your local independent book store.

PODCAST: HuffPost’s Listen To America Tour Visits Detroit With Jo Confino http://www.dailydetroit.com/2017/10/03/podcast-huffposts-listen-america-tour-visits-detroit-jo-confino/ http://www.dailydetroit.com/2017/10/03/podcast-huffposts-listen-america-tour-visits-detroit-jo-confino/#respond Wed, 04 Oct 2017 00:17:59 +0000 http://www.dailydetroit.com/?p=38722

The HuffPost, formerly known as the Huffington Post, was in Campus Martius in Detroit capturing stories from Detroiters as part of their Listen To America Tour.

They’re visiting 25 cities across the heartland of the country to get a beat on what people actually care about. It’s an interesting experiment in outreach.

So we talked with Jo Confino. At HuffPost, Confino is Editor of Impact & Innovation and Editorial Director of their solutions journalism project, “What’s Working.”

The conversation gets into the challenges of solutions journalism — how it’s harder than chasing down the crime stories of the day, and it’s not always about positive stories. Also, breaking down the mental barriers that some journalists have.

Apologies ahead of time for a little wind noise. We recorded on location for this one.

Panel On Coworking On Thursday, October 5 http://www.dailydetroit.com/2017/09/28/panel-coworking-thursday-october-5/ http://www.dailydetroit.com/2017/09/28/panel-coworking-thursday-october-5/#respond Thu, 28 Sep 2017 20:23:58 +0000 http://www.dailydetroit.com/?p=38631 One of the hotter trends in Detroit’s business district is coworking. It’s where there’s shared space, or dedicated offices, but housed or built around a community.

This kind of flexible space has been key to many companies coming to Detroit, establishing a beachhead, and then expanding.

On October 5, the Detroit Regional Chamber is hosting an event at 8 a.m. to talk about the subject. On the panel, moderated by Crain’s Detroit Business reporter Annalise Frank, will be:

  • Amanda Lewan, Co-Founder and CEO, Bamboo Detroit
  • Matthew Piper, Green Garage Detroit
  • Kyle Steiner, Community Director, WeWork Detroit

The event, put on by the Detroit Regional Chamber, is $30 for members or $50 for non-members. More here.

We took a couple of minutes to talk about the upcoming event. The conversation is below from our Daily Detroit News Byte. You can subscribe for free in Apple Podcasts here.

Note: Bamboo Detroit is an occasional advertiser on Daily Detroit, but had no input or knowledge we did this story.

PODCAST: Open Streets Detroit And A MoGo Bike Share Update With Lisa Nuszkowski http://www.dailydetroit.com/2017/09/25/podcast-open-streets-detroit-mogo-bike-share-update-lisa-nuszkowski/ http://www.dailydetroit.com/2017/09/25/podcast-open-streets-detroit-mogo-bike-share-update-lisa-nuszkowski/#respond Mon, 25 Sep 2017 19:52:18 +0000 http://www.dailydetroit.com/?p=38579

More and more in Detroit, bikes and streets for pedestrians are a thing.

With Open Streets Detroit coming up on October 1 — a festival where 3.5 miles of Michigan Avenue and Vernor will be closed to all vehicle traffic and turn into a giant street festival — our host, Sven Gustafson, figured that this was the perfect time to check in with Lisa Nuszkowski.

She is a wearer of many hats. Not only is she part of making the Open Streets Detroit event happen, she is the Founder & Executive Director of the MoGo Detroit Bike Share.

Show highlights:

  • The upcoming Open Streets Detroit this weekend [1m18s] (October 1) and all of the activities running from Beacon Park in downtown Detroit all the way through Southwest Detroit.
  • We get an update on the Detroit bike share system, MoGo [8m54s] that has 430 bikes across 43 stations.
  • MoGo Bike share will be offering free rides throughout Open Streets Detroit on October 1. [10m42s]
  • How has education been going [12m01, and what about theft and other challenges? [18m49s]
  • What about funding? How does that play into making the MoGo project more equitable? [19m58s]
  • Sven asks about expansion to the rest of the city? And maybe the suburbs? It’s a real possibility. It’s a matter of funding (Editor’s note: MoGo is not a government service provided by the city of Detroit. It’s has a nonprofit structure). [24m32s]

PODCAST: “The Race Is Over,” Moroun Will Build His Bridge To Canada First With Dave Battagello, Windsor Star http://www.dailydetroit.com/2017/09/13/podcast-morouns-going-win-bridge-building-race-dave-battagello-windsor-star/ http://www.dailydetroit.com/2017/09/13/podcast-morouns-going-win-bridge-building-race-dave-battagello-windsor-star/#respond Thu, 14 Sep 2017 00:28:34 +0000 http://www.dailydetroit.com/?p=38356

This edition of the Daily Detroit Happy Hour is very timely as Sven Gustafson is talking to veteran reporter Dave Battagello of the Windsor Star about the bridge projects to Canada, the border crossing, and how it affects thousands of people.

He’s been the lead guy covering this issue that most of the Detroit media has been silent on, even though long term, it will affect the livelihoods of many citizens of both countries, and there’s important news.

There are some key points you’re going to want to listen for.

  • Under Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, work on the bridge has stalled and lobbying efforts have increased.
  • Billionaire Matty Moroun & The Detroit International Bridge Company are a lot closer to a twin Ambassador bridge than the publicly funded project.
  • The permit Moroun received says he has to complete his bridge within five years; the Gordie Howe span won’t be completed for at least six years.
  • Moroun already has the plazas in place and just needs to build the span over the river and a Canadian truck inspection station, where there’s still a lot of demolition and construction to complete the Gordie Howe.

It was great talking to Battagello who has been eating, sleeping and breathing this beat. Be sure to have a full listen.
