Description

The City tells true stories of how power works in urban America. Season 1 begins in Chicago, 1990. Winter is turning into spring, and in Chicago, that means construction season. After years of disinvestment, highways are rebuilt, old buildings demolished, new skyscrapers erected. All that rubble has to go somewhere, and its destination isn’t a landfill—it’s a pair of vacant lots in a black, working-class neighborhood called North Lawndale. The man behind this operation is a white guy sporting a Cosby sweater and underworld connections. What follows is a tour de force through Chicago’s underbelly: Aldermen get indicted. An FBI investigation goes awry. A community’s resilience is tested—all unfolding under the spectre of racism in America. Learn more and explore the dumps in North Lawndale via augmented reality at thecitypodcast.com

Customer Reviews

Racism?

She is struggling desperately to find racism everywhere. It is sort of pathetic.

Biased and Racist View of Chicago

This podcast goes out of its way to make Chicago look a racist wasteland. There is clearly an agenda being pushed hard here.

Good

Good show...tries to hard to make it into something it’s wasn’t, but good story.
