Why accidents aren't accidental
Play • 53 min

Vox’s Marin Cogan talks with author and journalist Jessie Singer, whose book There Are No Accidents asks us to completely rethink our understanding of accidents as seemingly random, blameless, harm-inducing events. Marin and Jessie discuss what drug overdoses, car crashes, and apartment building fires have in common, the systemic structural vulnerabilities that lead to accidents, and how we can press for greater accountability.

Host: Marin Cogan (@marincogan), Senior Features Correspondent, Vox

Guest: Jessie Singer (@JessieSingerNYC), author; journalist
