Julián Castro rose from a low-income household in his native San Antonio, Texas, to become the city’s mayor at the age of 34. He would go on to serve as Secretary of Housing and Urban Development under Barack Obama, becoming President Obama’s youngest Cabinet secretary. A one-time summer intern for the Bill Clinton White House, he ran for the presidency himself in 2020. His observations on the campaign trail and as a Cabinet secretary led to his new podcast, “Our America with Julián Castro,” in which he explores the disparity in the American experience and the steps we might take toward a healthier, more just and fair America.

Secretary Castro discusses what he learned in his 2020 presidential run, his new podcast “One America with Julián Castro,” and, given the challenges of inequity we face today, the state of the American Dream.
