Southeast Side community activist Olga Bautista  and Josh Mogerman of the Natural Resources Defense Council join Justin to discuss a neurotoxic manganese threat to a Chicago residential community on the Southeast Side of Chicago. Josh and Olga talk about how the community has had their eye on the dangers of manganese for a while, why the companies in the community haven’t done more to prevent these dangers and what the city of Chicago and the EPA are doing about the problem.
