Martin Bandyke Under Covers for July 2022: Martin interviews Alex B. Hill, author of Detroit in 50 Maps

Tue, 07/05/2022 - 9:38am

Detroit in 50 Maps shows you the Motor City from entirely new perspectives, from neighborhood coffee shops to the legacy of redlining.

There are thousands of ways to map a city. Roads, bridges, and railways help you navigate the twists and turns; topography gives you the lay of the land; population growth shows you its changing fortunes. But the best maps let you feel what that city's really like. Detroit in 50 Maps deconstructs the Motor City in surprising new ways. Track where new coffee shops and co-working spaces have opened and closed in the last five years. Find the areas with the highest concentrations of pizzerias, Coney Island hot dog shops, or ring-necked pheasants. In each colorful map, you'll find a new perspective on one of America’s most misunderstood cities and the people who live here.

A conversation starter for Detroiters past, present, and future, Detroit in 50 Maps is for anyone keen to understand the city in new and surprising ways.

AADL Talks To: Hollanders

Tue, 02/15/2022 - 3:13pm

In this episode AADL Talks To Tom and Cindy Hollander, owners of Hollander’s. The specialty paper business formerly resided in Kerrytown from 1991-2020. The business began in Ann Arbor in 1986, when the Hollanders started by running the business out of their home. After many renovations and expansions, the store eventually became a 14,000 square foot site and must-see destination in Kerrytown’s historic Godfrey Building.

The Gayest Generation Ep. 7 - Annise Parker

Mon, 08/23/2021 - 3:45pm

Welcome to The Gayest Generation, where we hear LGBTQ older adults speak for themselves. Every episode, we sit down with a different member of the LGBTQ community who laid the foundation for the freedoms we have today. Stories—their stories—make noise where there is silence and that silence has lived for far too long. It is time we let their voices fill the room.

In this episode, we hear from CEO of the LGBTQ Victory Fund and former Mayor of Houston, TX Annise Parker. We learn about how she overcame immense adolescent anxiety, what an average day looks like for the mayor of a major American city and the unexpected kindnesses that led Mayor Parker to where she is today.

AADL is excited to announce that you can listen to this episode, or any episode of The Gayest Generation, on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or YouTube!

Welcome to The Gayest Generation, where we hear LGBTQ Elders speak for themselves.

In this episode, we hear from Ann Arbor's own Annie Wolock. We learn what is was like growing up Jewish in Detroit, Ann Arbor's forgotten Disco scene, and we remember Michigan Womyn's Music Festivals. Due to adult language, listener discretion is advised.
