Max Armstrong talks weather, a fighter-jet protest, an interesting Thanksgiving tradition and food safety

Max Armstrong opens with a look at the intensity of the pre-Thanksgiving storm hitting the upper Midwest. Folks in Madison, Wis., are protesting stationing F-35 fighters near the Wisconsin town, but another state and base have stepped up. Max offers a look at information on a popular Thanksgiving tradition – the turkey trot. Of course, those runs do help counter calories consumed at the big meal. From This Week in Agribusiness, food recalls are a hot topic including that romain lettuce recall. Max adds some perspective to those big-news food safety recalls.

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