Authors of Our Towns: A 100,000-mile Journey Into the Heart of America

Interview starts at 9:43 and ends at 39:14

“James Fallows: ‘Through my reportorial lifetime I’ve seen a number crises for the American system, which the U.S. has so far managed to muddle its way through. That does not guarantee continued muddling, but I personally am more heartened than I thought I would be by all this resilience around the country. So Deb, will we make it?’ Deborah Fallows: ‘I’m going to say we’ll make it. It’s the generations that are coming up--it’s their turn to help make this right now.”
