Upward Social Mobility is a podcast mini series on navigating American life during COVID and a contentious political climate.
It is November of the year 2020 in the United States. Many Americans are trying to find or define life again. They are struggling with their value systems, and how that orients them in relation to living in this country. Should they aim to be rich? Should they aim to be happy? Should they go woke or broke? Or is America just a pit stop?
The term ’social mobility’ describes how we move through different stages of our lives. In this mini series, we focus on three forms of mobility — physical, income, and transportation. These three forms of mobility are the pillars to upward social mobility in the United States.
