Lead poisoning was made famous by the Flint water crisis, but few of us are actually knowledgable about the dangers of lead and how its affecting other cities. In this episode, we sit down with Robin Brown and learn about the silent epidemic of lead poisoning in our cities. Robin works in Cleveland as an advocate for those in danger of experiencing lead poisoning and an educator for those who have been poisoned. Her daughter was poisoned in 1999 and in 2005 Robin and her daughter founded CCOAL (Concerned Citizens Organized Against Lead). Robin lives in the Mt. Pleasant neighborhood on the Eastside of Cleveland.
