Episode 13, Environmental Racism

Finally, a full-scale episode again!

We talk to Teressa Benz and Cedric Taylor about the Flint water crisis. Professors Benz and Taylor both draw on their scholarship to inform their social justice work in different ways. 

Then, Andy discusses recent hurricanes in the global South and the ways that environmental racism affected Americans' political and cultural responses. Elizabeth talks about environmental injustice in relation to historic African American sites.

And then we talk Weezer and tiki bars.
