About Us: Our Hometown Flint, Michigan

 

This podcast was born in Flint, Michigan, a rust belt factory town.

 
The 1937 UAW sit-down strike occurred at this General Motors automobile factory. 

The hard-working people of this gritty, blue-collar, working-class neighborhood fought for the dignity and fair treatment of General Motors factory workers. These courageous factory workers fought for and won a place in the American middle class.

We are deeply committed to public service and social and economic justice.

We present podcast interviews, video podcasts, and audio essays about the blue-collar way of life, their culture, and issues affecting working-class communities. We share the personal life histories and aspirations of the working person in America's rust belt.
