Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams returns to the podcast to talk about his new book, Healthy at Last. Part family memoir, part political mission statement, part science review, part self-help book, and part cookbook, this is a celebration of the possibilities of health for the American people in general, and the Black community in particular.

We talk about the title - from Etta James, and not Martin Luther King, Jr's "I have a dream" speech, as I first assumed - and the fact that, in Adams' words, "slavery never ended," and remains entrenched in the slave foods that are still harming Black people to this day.
