In the second half of the podcast, I am always joined by Cyndy Schalter from Turning Point Macomb. This week we talk about the death of rapper Mac Miller and his struggle with addiction.

Michigan high school replaces homecoming queen with 'excellence award,' sparks debate

High school is full of time-honored traditions, but one Michigan school says it has done away with electing a homecoming queen for the greater good. The news has since been both championed and condemned, sparking great debate on social media.

Cyndy and I also discuss a big walk that is happening on Saturday September 21st in honor of Tara Grant who was murdered by her husband. The walk will kick off "Domestic Violence Awareness" month.

Mount Clemens-based Turning Point will kick off Domestic Violence Awareness Month events on Saturday with the 11th annual Tara's Walk at Freedom Hill County Park in Sterling Heights. Turning Point, which operates Macomb County's domestic violence shelter, said it will use proceeds from the event for the Tara Liberation Fund, which provides emergency cash assistance to survivors fleeing dangerous situations.
