Every mayor promises to rid New York City of its rats and every one of them has failed! Despite the nonstop extermination efforts the city’s most notorious resident continues to thrive. Is there anything we can ultimately do? Hear from NYC’s “Rat Czar,” Robert Corrigan, a historian of rats, Robert Sullivan, and a biologist specializing in rat genetics, Jason Munshi-South. The conversation will be moderated by Robin Nagle, anthropologist-in-residence for the New York City's Department of Sanitation.
