On today’s show, Michigan and Metro Detroit have been talking about the callout by Michigan Advance reporter Allison Donahue of State Senator Peter Lucido, after this exchange, excerpted from her first-person account:

“You should hang around! You could have a lot of fun with these boys, or they could have a lot of fun with you.”

The teenagers burst into an Old Boys’ Network-type of laughter, and I walked away knowing that I had been the punchline of their “locker room” talk.

Except it wasn’t the locker room; it was the Senate chamber. And this isn’t high school. It’s my career.

We quickly run through where it stands as of this recording (here’s her original, first-person post) and here’s Lucido’s tweet about it and another story about it.

Oh, and a national story too.

But more than the basics lots of people may know by now, I talk about my experiences, how Lucido’s actions aren’t surprising to me and praise Donahue — with apologies to Lizzo — as “100% That Reporter.” 

If you’re interested in who I talked about and learning more about who helped give me the keys to my own power through verbal self-defense, go here.

And, me and Jer touch on the disappointment of a first-run movie theatre project falling through over parking problems.

Here’s the original Crain’s story you should check out and we expand, discuss and break it down. Will this obsession with parking mean we’ll never get some things?
