Guests: Tracy K. Smith, Mona Hanna-Attisha, Nadine Burke Harris
On this Martin Luther King Day, we’re going to bring you three of our favorite interviews from Radio Times past. First, we’ll listen to former poet laureate, TRACY K. SMITH, who joined us on the show to talk about how she first became interested in poetry, and to read some of her work. Her collection of poetry is called Wade in the Water. Then, we’ll hear about the ongoing water crisis in Flint, Michigan, as well as the details of how harmful lead can be to children. MONA HANNA-ATTISHA is a pediatrician and activist who was called to testify before Congress about the severity of the lead levels in the water supply. Finally, we’ll hear about the long-term effects that childhood trauma and adversity can cause when we revisit Marty’s conversation with NADINE BURKE HARRIS, founder and CEO of the Center for Youth Wellness.
