This week is like Christmas, New Year's and birthdays combined for Bill Ballenger and Dennis Denno, who discuss their favorite topic in this special post-election edition of the weekly podcast sponsored by Deadline Detroit:  

  • Michigan Democrats outperform their national counterparts in the 2018 election, winning all of the state's top offices and almost everything else.
  • Democrats also sweep state education board races and another seat on the state Supreme Court, where they may now have a working majority.
  • All three ballot proposals are approved, but could there be trouble ahead? Interview with MIRS editor Kyle Melinn.
