Essential CA water convos
If you follow CA water issues, you know that a few voices tend to dominate the conversations, and be amplified by media, despite there being many others who have important and necessary things to say. This podcast fills an essential role in broadening the conversation and including perspectives that are often marginalized. So excited for what is next with this podcast.
