This week we discuss an interesting act of altruism. And, I recently spoke with Chris Smith, Assistant Professor of Sociology of the University of Toronto, about her recent paper titled “Exogenous Shocks, the Criminal Elite, and Increasing Gender Inequality in Chicago Organized Crime.” The paper is to be published in the American Sociological Review, and is sole-authored.

Segment 1 – Chris Smith on “Exogenous Shocks, the Criminal Elite, and Increasing Gender Inequality in Chicago Organized Crime.”

Segment 2 – Unexplained Altruism between Nations and Peoples.
