Episode 18: Redlining, Racism, Obesity, and Food Deserts. Related? An Interview with Anthony Goodwin, MBA

Let me ask you a question. Are these things related? Historic redlining, racism, food scarcity, and obesity. Are people who live in previously redlined areas worse off, and do they have worse health outcomes than those who live elsewhere? 

In this February 2024 episode, host Tim Jordan explores these questions and more with Anthony Goodwin, the young man who did this research and answered these questions. Listen, learn, subscribe, and share. Thanks!
