Guest host Amanda Uhle talks with Luke Shaefer, co-author with Kathryn Edin of $2.00 A Day: Living on Almost Nothing in America. They talk about how poverty in the U.S. has deepened and expanded in the last 25 years and about the role of public policy in those changes. They also talk about eye-opening data and the real, human stories of American poverty that the data represents.
Arundhati Roy talks about her introduction to B.R. Ambedkar’s Annihilation of Caste: The Annotated Critical Edition published by Verso. We talk about ‘The Doctor and The Saint: The Ambedkar-Gandhi Debate: Race, Caste, and Colonialism.’
