If you’d like to plan a Halloween display that’s a bit more elaborate than store-bought skeletons and cardboard gravestones, “How to Halloween” in Lansing on Saturday is the place to pick up some tips. Current State’s Scott Pohl talks with Robot Pumpkin co-founders Steve Sneed and Jerry Jodloski about do-it-yourself Halloween projects.

A group of MSU alumni spent a month this summer traveling the country in search of stories about death, religion, and the supernatural. Then, they turned those stories into the first season of "The Looncast." We talk with two of the creators of the new Detroit podcast about what they learned along the way.
