Slate Plus members get a bonus episode of Slow Burn every week. This week we hear from Dr. Joycelyn Elders, a pediatrician who served as the country’s first African American Surgeon General during President Clinton’s first term. Leon also talks to Slate senior producer Mary Wilson about the making of episode 2.
Season Two of Slow Burn was produced by Leon Neyfakh and Andrew Parsons. Research assistance from Madeline Kaplan. Bonus episodes for the season were produced by Jeff Friedrich and Mary Wilson.
