tal firemen16x9This week on This American Life: In the wake of George Floyd, people everywhere are demanding that police departments change not just their rules, but the culture inside. But these things are notoriously hard to change. As a case study, This American Life tells the story of a fire department that gets a new boss who starts a war with his own firefighters...to change their macho, racist culture. They fight back hard.
