Best Environmental Justice Podcast

This podcast is phenomenal! The stories are compelling, factual, and well told. It covers important topics and is so engaging I find myself still thinking about the injustices it details days after listening. Definitely recommend!

Very informative

This podcast is very well done and reminds me somewhat of radio labs. Very informative and educational. Good listen for everyone to learn and become aware of what is happening to our environment as we go about our busy lives. Hopefully we all learn from this that we can make a difference if we put in the time and energy to some major environmental issues we are facing.

As riveting as Serial but more important

Broken Ground is incredibly well researched and produced - reminds me of Serial and some of the other NPR podcasts. The stories they are telling are so important and deserved to be shared.
