The latest episode of “Meeting in Middle America” with host Steven Olikara features a discussion with Milwaukee County Executive David Crowley, the first African-American and Millennial to serve as the county’s top official. The podcast highlights the twin public health crises of COVID-19 and racism, and how county officials are responding. Olikara and Crowley also discuss the importance of building bridges within local communities, and how that relates to the broader effort to improve the health of county residents.
