S21 E9: "Almost Perfect Overlaps" | Cooked: Survival by Zip Code

0:01:29 | Clip
In this excerpt from Cooked: Survival by Zip Code, Dr. Linda Murray, a public health medical officer, talks about being enraged but not surprised at the high death toll of poor people of color who died in the 1995 heatwave in Chicago. And Steven Whitman, the city's chief epidemiologist at the time, shows a stark "heat death map" illustrating the obvious overlap of the poor and the dead.
