Alexis Santos on the Puerto Rico Hurricane Death Counts*

October 30, 2018


An interview with Alexis Santos (Penn State Health and Human Development), one of the researchers who questioned official death counts of Puerto Rico fatalities resulting from Hurricane Maria.  Santos’ and similar analyses led to important questions about the adequacy of government responses to the hurricane.  We also discuss the Tree of Life shooting in Pittsburgh, whether publishers are a positive force in education and research, proposals to create an African-American team at the World Baseball Classic, and the case of Andrew Arato, a New School professor who was punished for bullying.
