S1E10: ‘For Our Institution to Have a Future, Our Community Needs to Have a Future’ | (Deborah and James Fallows, Veteran Journalists)
Deborah and James Fallows are experienced, accomplished journalists who have influenced culture through their insights on politics, foreign affairs, and life in America.
Together, the Fallows wrote Our Towns, a best-selling book that was published in 2018. Our Towns describes how they spent four years traveling 100,000 miles in their single-engine plane.
The couple reported from dozens of cities and towns across America, and their book celebrates how these communities are successfully navigating the socio-economic challenges in America in the 21st century.
In this episode, Deb and Jim talk about their life story and share some of the defining attributes of cities and towns that are on the rise.
They also share observations from their visits to Muncie and why they believe Ball State’s partnership with Muncie Community Schools is “unprecedented in modern American history.”
