In a new season of Pew’s “After the Fact” podcast, we explore diversity in America and how race intersects with research in a range of fields—from public opinion polling to medicine to economics.
We talk with social scientists who are exploring how the nuances of race can change how issues are viewed, and other experts who are looking at how diverse viewpoints improve policy solutions. The episodes of this season are a contribution to the evolving national conversation about race and diversity, offering a timely look at the challenges, opportunities—and the work—ahead.
