*** Check out the free America Explained newsletter for a few posts a month on American politics and foreign policy ***

When we think of America, one of the first images that comes to mind are often a neat row of suburban houses, or long highways stretching into the distance. But how did those pictures come about, and what about the people who got left out – the people who couldn’t afford one of those suburban houses, or whose life would be much easier if they could travel by rail? In this episode Andy and Catherine discuss the ways that America’s built environment has been shaped by race and why undoing its toxic legacies is so difficult.
