Up North Lowdown: And now, a word about pizza

We're taking a little break from our usual episode this week. In its place, a conversation about pizza and a new podcast we're excited to hear.

 Up North Lowdown - Interlochen Public Radio, NPR Network

Our friends at Michigan Radio will launch "Dough Dynasty," a podcast examining how our state became the pizza capital of the world.

We love pizza. We love Michigan Radio.

So we thought it would be fun to chat with our pals April Baer and Laura Weber Davis about their project and how it's about way more than cheesy pie.

Listen to our chat — including producer Max Copeland's treatise on the great pizza options Up North — and then listen to "Dough Dynasty," out Oct. 3 from Michigan Radio. Then try to resist ordering a pizza.

Max Copeland is the local weekday host of All Things Considered on Interlochen Public Radio and the producer of The Up North Lowdown, IPR’s weekly news podcast.
