DETROIT – On this week’s episode we spoke with people who have survived COVID-19.

And devastation, frustration -- but not surprise. There was also a discussion about what can be done to address issues with Michigan’s aging, neglected and increasingly dangerous infrastructure.

Segment One:

Roundtable discussion on recovering from the coronavirus featuring Pulitzer Prize winning reporter, M.L Elrick and his wife Detroit Free Press reporter, Tresa Baldas; Rev. Horace Sheffield, one of several notable pastors in Detroit to fall victim to coronavirus and Dr. Scott Kaatz, a Henry Ford Health System physician. Kaatz caught the coronavirus and sadly lost his father to the virus earlier this month.
