What was it like being a Detroit police officer at the corner of Michigan and Trumbull after game 5 of the ’84 World Series?
LANSING—The Friday Morning Podcast, a podcast hosted on Bill Ballenger’s website, www.theballengerreport.com and produced by Dennis Denno, today uploaded the second podcast with Sid Bogan, the Chief of Transit Police for the City of Detroit.
Bogan talks about teaching American soldiers how to deal with torture and being in a scout car on the corner of Michigan and Trumbull during the 1984 World Series. He also talks about being the Chief of Staff for former Detroit City Councilman Gary Brown, and suggests how Detroit could have avoided bankruptcy.
“Bogan is a great story that no one has heard of,” Ballenger said. “It is amazing how varied his experiences are. He really is the story of Detroit.

The podcast will be posted on the 1st and 3rd Friday of every month. The podcasts have a interview-style format with Denno as host. Each podcast is approximately 10-15 minutes long.
