Fighting noise pollution in Beacon Hill

Season: 2019
Eps: 6

The noise of airplanes flying over Beacon Hill is more than just a nuisance: Research connects it to depression, lower test scores and increased risk of heart disease. Lower income, majority nonwhite neighborhoods like Beacon Hill suffer the most, but reducing noise requires help from state and federal officials. As concerned neighbors gather data on their own, they hope someone will listen.
