Read the transcript

In this episode, we take a virtual walk down Main Street. Or, more precisely, Main Streets: why they’re so important to communities, why they may be at risk and what can be done about it. Corey and Steve are joined by Dr. Mindy Fullilove, a social psychiatrist and author of eight books, including her most recent entitled Main Street: How a City’s Heart Connects Us All. Together, they discuss what defines a Main Street, the psychological and economic impacts of Main Streets and how, with our help, they will endure.
