Max Armstrong talks holiday traffic, a mystery substance along a Michigan highway and the closing of a popular orchard

Max Armstrong shares that for this holiday season nearly a third of the U.S. population will be on the road. In Michigan, drivers saw something unusual, including an oozing green fluid along I-696 which is contaminated ground water. And from This Week in Agribusiness there's news that the Tree-Mendus Fruit Farm will be closing its doors after this season. A Missouri farmer accused of murdering two Wisconsin farmer brothers goes to court this week.

Midwest Digest is a twice-daily audio feature produced by Max Armstrong, offering news and commentary from across the Midwest.
