Bill Ballenger and Dennis Denno, veterans of Michigan politics, discuss timely issues on "The Friday Morning Podcast," sponsored by Deadline Detroit:

► Action-filled week in the Michigan Legislature as auto insurance reform roars through both chambers in barely more than a day, with Gov. Gretchen Whitmer threatening veto.

► Bill to offer $10 million in compensation to wrongly-convicted passed unanimously by both chambers, but may be vetoed by Whitmer for "inside baseball" political reasons.

► Interview with state Rep. Jon Hoadley (D-Kalamazoo), running for the Democratic nomination in Michigan's 6th Congressional District against U.S. Rep. Fred Upton (R-St. Joseph).
