This is the inaugural State of the State podcast.

Each month, MSU professors Charles Ballard and Matt Grossmann will aim for a lively discussion of Michigan policy and current events.

They’ll run down 3 or 4 hot topics, pointing to research on each policy issue.

In this edition, they cover income tax cuts, Detroit’s bid for Amazon’s second headquarters, and the proposal for a part-time legislature.

Here they’ll aim to promote historical and national context. They won’t be your best source for day-to-day legislative politics, who’s winning and losing, and political strategy advice. But they can provide researchers’ views of how policy differs across states, how Michigan is positioned nationally, and the influence of policy on economic and social outcomes.

They’ll have guests on future shows.
