By Every Measure
Last year, 88Nine Radio Milwaukee launched the fantastic, award-winning podcast series, By Every Measure. Co-hosted by data expert & research journalist Reggie Jackson and Radio Milwaukee’s Director of Digital Strategy & Innovation Tarik Moody, each episode focuses on systemic racism in a different sector of Milwaukee (health, education, etc.), using data to explore how each system was formed and how they can (and should) be changed for the better.
In episode 03, they set their sights on housing discrimination. If you’re unfamiliar with this topic, episode 03 is a fantastic entry point. As we mentioned in a blog earlier this month, Milwaukee has the second-largest homeownership gap between black families and white families in the nation. Jackson and Moody discuss this, as well as the history of housing discrimination in our country (including the government’s role in keeping Black people from buying homes), and what we can do about it.
