States of Innovation From 'After the Fact'
States of Innovation From 'After the Fact'

The latest season of Pew’s “After the Fact” podcast looks at the innovative solutions some states are developing to meet long-standing problems. From making small loans more affordable for consumers, to improving community flood preparedness, to designing corridors for wildlife to migrate safely across high-traffic roads—protecting animals and drivers—state leaders are working together to tackle big challenges.

We speak with Sue Urahn, Pew’s new president and CEO, about the role of data in state policymaking and share five of these stories of innovation from around the nation. Join us as we explore how states are finding new ways to solve problems, even during a pandemic, and hear from the leaders and experts who are making a difference.
