Today we're talking about three stories around town with Fletcher Sharpe. First up, news that the old Belle Isle Zoo (technically, the Children's Zoo for a time) will be razed and turned into natural habitat.

Both of us remember going to that place when it was a thing, we share our memories and a movie that was shot there. Second, the Belle Isle slide is returning this summer, says the Michigan DNR. Is riding the Giant Slide at Belle Isle your real "I'm a Detroiter" baptism? (We're of course joking, kinda?)

And finally, with the rise of the WNBA - we're feeling like Detroit is on the sidelines and wax poetic about the Detroit Shock and their legacy here, and how they should be brought back, especially with the rise of the women's game.
