Episode 6: City Hall

Dan sits down with Asher to discuss how his increased political involvement created a closer relationship between himself and City Hall, leading ultimately to his participation in the Urban Fellowship program. In Dan’s own words: “The Fellowship would enable 20 students from all over the United States to work full-time at challenging positions in NYC government. Students were supposed to get academic credit for the year, and a $3,000 stipend from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. That would pay my entire room, board, and tuition costs for the year. Actually, my mother took notice of the program before I did, but she did not have to work very hard to persuade me to apply. This changed my life.”
