This week on TalkPoverty Radio, we are talking Baltimore and moms. Our friends at Media Matters help us cut through the conservative media narratives that blame the Baltimore unrest on welfare; Sam Seder examines conservative rhetoric versus reality; Jenée Desmond-Harris of Vox reports from Baltimore on what is happening on the ground; we take a look at how moms get blamed for basically all of our social ills; and more.  Our guests include Sam Seder, host of the Majority Report and co-host of Ring of Fire; Rebecca Lenn, Director of Outreach at Media Matters for America; Jenée Desmond-Harris, staff writer at Vox.com; Linda Blum, Associate Professor of Sociology at Northeastern University and author of Raising Generation Rx: Mothering Kids with Disabilities in an Age of Inequality; and ​Levester Joe Green II and Bryan Bello, co-directors of the film I am Levester Joe Green II.
