Detroit Today is an hour-long Monday-to-Friday radio program from WDET, hosted by journalist Stephen Henderson. He also appears on Detroit Public Television’s One Detroit program.

In the interview, Henderson asked about the monthly program as well as many of the issues that impact people living around the Great Lakes including Enbridge Line 5, PFAS and other water quality concerns.

“This is a really important time to be talking about the Great Lakes,” Henderson said in the 12-minute segment of the program. “They’re with us all the time, they frame a lot of our lives in an economic and political and social sense, but we’ve got all of these huge water quality issues cropping up around Michigan. I would imagine Great Lakes Now is going to tell us a little more about that.”
