Episode 7: The Power of the 'Grit' Narrative

A bonus installment of our series. We’re stepping back to review the key themes of the first season of the series, and look at what’s changed since we reported some of the controversies we dug into. Plus, we talk with Alissa Quart about why narratives of self-reliance are so hard to shake.

Host: Jeff Young (@jryoung)
