Episode 6: And They Won, They Won Big

It started with a puzzle: why were people in West Oakland dying 12-15
years earlier than their counterparts in the wealthier hills? The
people in the flatlands were dying of the same things as the people in
the hills, just much younger. Meet the doctor who helped make the case
that air pollution from cargo handling was one big part of the answer,
and the smart-dressing, wise-cracking environmental activist who
helped to clean up the air. This is an inside look at the problems
that come with being a major node in the network of global trade—and
the solutions that people have devoted their lives to implementing.
