Everyone Wants To Fix The Damn Roads' But We Dont Really Want To Pay For It
Just in time for the Mackinac Policy Conference, the Center for Michigan and its Bridge Magazine have a new report out all about Michiganâ€™s abysmal roads. Itâ€™s titledÂ Fixing Michiganâ€™s Road Mess: The Unclear Path Ahead. The report is the result of convening more than 3,200 residents across the state to talk about the state of our roads. It found broad agreement, unsurprisingly, that our roads are in terrible shape. But it found no consensus whatsoever on the issue of how to pay for repairing them â€” or how much we should spend repairing them. On this episode, we spoke with Bridge Magazineâ€™s public engagement reporter, Allie Schmidt, about the report and some of its findings. Gov. Gretchen Whitmer made â€œfixing the damn roadsâ€ a centerpiece of her successful election campaign last year, and with auto insurance reform edging closer to completion, the issue figures to loom over the Mackinac Policy Conference this week on Mackinac Island.

S2 Ep. 10 Jaime Schmidt: Turning Natural Deoderant into Gold
Jaime Schmidt, founder of Schmidtâ€™s Naturals, created her award-winning natural deodorant when she was pregnant and concerned about the widespread use of unnatural ingredients in deodorant. So she created a better alternative for herself and others. From farmers' market tables, her productsâ€”which came to include soaps and toothpasteâ€”stormed the shelves of CVS, Walmart, Costco, and Whole Foods. By 2017, when Schmidt sold her company to Unilever for an undisclosed amount, Schmidt's Naturals was in more than 14,000 stores in over 30 countries, with year-over-year growth of 300 percent. Alli and Michael caught up with Jaime to find out how she turned her hobby into a global company, and why sheâ€™s now now investing in fellow entrepreneurs.
