“Part Three”  (with Wunmi Mosaku & Justin Fenton)

Host D. Watkins discusses episode three, which focuses on how policing affects the lives of everyday Baltimoreans. The show’s executive producers George Pelecanos (The Deuce) and David Simon (The Wire, The Deuce) discuss creating the character of Nicole Steele and the impact of consent decrees on policing in Baltimore. Actor Wunmi Mosaku talks to Watkins about what she learned from playing Nicole Steele and how American policing looks different than it does where she grew up. Next, journalist Justin Fenton (author of We Own This City, the book that inspired the show) joins Watkins to discuss what he has learned throughout his career reporting on police in Baltimore and the stories behind some of the officers who inspired characters in the show.  Source:  https://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/623113/we-own-this-city-by-justin-fenton/See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
