    I spoke with Dr Mark Rank about his new book POORLY UNDERSTOOD: What Americans Get Wrong About Poverty
    Dr. Rank is widely recognized as one of the foremost experts and speakers in the country on issues of poverty, inequality, and social justice. His research and teaching have focused on poverty, social welfare, economic inequality, and social policy. Dr. Rank has published numerous scholarly articles. His first book, Living on the Edge: The Realities of Welfare in America, explored the conditions of surviving on public assistance and achieved widespread critical acclaim. His 2004 book, One Nation, Underprivileged: Why American Poverty Affects Us All, provided a new understanding of poverty in America. His life-course research has demonstrated for the first time that a majority of Americans will experience poverty and will use a social safety net program at some point during their lives.
    In 2014, extensive research with Dr. Rank's long-time collaborator, Thomas Hirschl of Cornell University culminated in the publications of Chasing the American Dream: Understanding the Dynamics that Shape Our Fortunes. This book explores the nature of the American Dream and the economic viability of achieving the Dream through both extensive data analysis and in-depth interviews with a wide spectrum of modern Americans. The book is designed to shed light on the tenuous nature of the American Dream in today’s society, and how to restore its relevance and vitality.

Listen!

Pete does an indispensable job of getting relevant and brilliant guests. He is not one of those egotistical hosts, but asks the piercing questions and is fine displaying the holes in his knowledge so that he and we can attempt to fill them in. I rely on his great podcasts.

Pete is Great

I’ve been a fan of Pete’s show since his time on XM. I only got to listen to that show for awhile until I gave up my XM subscription. I’m so happy to be able to listen, learn and enjoy Stand Up again!! I love the new format! I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know so many of your brilliant guests! I truly feel I have learned and grown as a human being through the stories, conversations and straight up lectures I have listened in on with your show! I listen while I run and try more often than not to get out into nature when I do :) I am working on a “News Dump” jingle submission with my daughters...(now that I’ve written that down I’ll actually have to do it)
Thank you, Pete, for helping to broaden my access to knowledge and enriching my experience of life!
