    Superman's Not Coming: Erin Brockovich on Our Lives with Shannon Fisher

    Superman's Not Coming: Erin Brockovich on Our Lives with Shannon Fisher

    Today, Shannon spoke with revered environmental activist Erin Brockovich about our nation's water crisis. We assume our water supply is safe because it is tested and treated by municipalities, but that isn't always the case.  Discovering impurities in a municipal water supply, and ultimately ensuring the situation is rectified, requires persistence, research, and commitment from community members. With the goal of educating and empowering communities in the fight for clean water, Erin Brockovich has written Superman's Not Coming: Our National Water Crisis and What We the People Can Do About It, which is essentially a step-by-step handbook for local citizens to stand up for themselves and their health. The book is packed with helpful information about water quality and community activism in accessible, easy-to-understand terms. 

    Our Lives with Shannon Fisher explores personal, political, and societal perspectives of the American experience. The show delves deeply into the worlds of writers, artists, celebrities, and community leaders and offers listeners food for thought on ways to better themselves and the world around them.
