Podcast from Washington: Authors of Broke in America: Seeing, Understanding, and Ending U.S. Poverty

Sep 24, 2021 | Ian Goldstein

In this week’s episode of Podcast from Washington, NACCHO government affairs team members Ian Goldstein and Adriane Casalotti discuss the looming deadline to pass a continuing resolution to fund the government by the end of the fiscal year on September 30, while also lifting the debt ceiling before a default. They also discuss the Food and Drug Administration’s approval of COVID-19 booster shots for those over 65, or over 18 and immunocompromised.

Later in the program, Ian speaks with the authors of Broke in America: Seeing, Understanding, and Ending U.S. Poverty, by Colleen Shaddox and Joanne Goldblum. They discuss how the authors became inspired to write a book about poverty in America and the solutions proposed in the book to tackle some of the nation’s biggest challenges for impoverished people, such as access to clean water, housing, and transportation.
