  • 1486 - Stateside Podcast: Afrofuturist Quilts Stitch Together Tradition and Imagination

    When you think about Afrofuturism, what pops into your head? Is it the sci-fi novels of writers Ocatvia Butler, Samuel Delany, or N.K. Jemisin? Or perhaps you’ve tuned in more recently to the representation of Afrofuturism on the big screen in movies like Black Panther. What about quilting? A new exhibit at Michigan State University showcases the Black artists using fabric and Afrofuturist themes to create unique works of art. On this episode, we'll hear from one of the curators about how these quilts envision a Black future while paying homage to its rich history.

  • 1485 - Doctor Says Private Equity Threatens Patient Care

    Medical professionals at Ascension hospitals are just recovering from the affects of a ransomware attack that targeted the health system on May 8. In addition to the challenge of relying on paper records, caregivers have long been grappling with Ascension's decision to arrange contracts with outside staffing companies.

    "A lot of us have worked for multiple different staffing agencies over the years. And the problem is, a lot of us feel like we're being bought and sold like cattle," Michelle Wiener, an emergency medicine doctor at Ascension St. John, said.
