PODCAST: Mindy Thompson Fullilove on Main Street as a 21st-Century Machine for Living


In Episode Twenty, Allison speaks with author and social psychiatrist Mindy Thompson Fullilove, about her book Main Street: How a City’s Heart Connects Us All. In it, Fullilove argues for a vision of Main Street — from large cities to rural farm towns — not as dead but as “machines for living” or “factories of invention” that not only build community but that can help us solve some of our biggest problems, like inequality, racism, and the climate crisis.
