Episode Details

Original tape date: May 25, 2015.

First aired: May 27, 2015.

On this edition of Independent Sources, hosted by Zyphus Lebrun, we find out why New York’s child poverty rates are higher than anywhere else in the United States. We learn about a recently published book that shows a more positive side of the city’s much-maligned public houses or “projects", as they are called colloquially. Then we feature a Brazilian artist whose work emphasizes the preservation of buildings of historical import.
