In the wake of fatal police encounters like that of Eric Garner and Michael Brown, the nation often pushes to have a national conversation on race and policing to find a solution. WNYC's Brian Lehrer hosted literally hosted one with many voices and across many cities.  In collaboration with public radio stations in St. Louis and Baltimore, Brian is joined by:

  • St. Louis Public Radio reporter Rachel Lippman
  • WYPR news director Joel McCord
  • WEAA contributor Roberto Alejandro
  • WNYC host and legal analyst Jami Floyd
  • John Jay College of Criminal Justice professor Peyer Moskos
  • activist DeRay Mckesson
  • executive director of St. Louis' Teach for America Brittany Packnett
  • and call-in listeners.
