Rising Up With Sonali

The Slumbering Masses: Sleep, Medicine, and the Modern American Life

On today’s show we’ll feature three conversations on US society. First Steven Hill will make the case for why we should Expand Social Security Now: How to Ensure Americans Get the Retirement They Deserve. Then researcher Matthew Wolf-Meyer will discuss the politics of sleep in his book, The Slumbering Masses: Sleep, Medicine, and the Modern American Life. Finally, sociologist Forrest Stuart will share with us how he spent 5 years on Los Angeles’ Skid Row to examine the policing of poor, homeless, and mentally ill Americans.

Hosted by Sonali Kolhatkar.
