This week we use differences in medical treatment for COVID-19 patients to consider a long-standing sociological challenge. And, I recently spoke with Professor Gregory Sharp of Dartmouth University about his recent paper titled “Tapped Out? Racial Disparities in Extra-Household Kin Resources and the Loss of Homeownership.” The paper is to be published in Demography, and is co-authored by Ellen Whitehead and Matthew Hall.

Segment 1 -- Gregory Sharp on “Tapped Out? Racial Disparities in Extra-Household Kin Resources and the Loss of Homeownership.”

Segment 2 -- The fraying bond between the people and the powerful in the United States.
