A new book looks at how the U.S. government subsidized segregation in cities throughout the country. Then, a local cardiologist explains why there are some things more vital to his practice than research. Plus, the Pulitzer-prize winning author of The Underground Railroad discusses why he refused to sanitize the brutal reality of American slavery. 

Guests: 

  • Richard Rothstein, author, The Color of Law: A Forgotten History of How Our Government Segregated America
  • Jim Spangler, Lake Effect essayist
  • Dr. Ivor Benjamin, president-elect, American Heart Association
  • Colson Whitehead, author, The Underground Railroad
