DontDrillSC ,

Excellent podcast

I listen to the “Living on Earth” podcast regularly and love Southern Environmental Law Center’s “Broken Ground” (though they need to do more). We REALLY needed a show focused on South Carolina’s environment and this accomplished that. Great interviewing skills by Alan Hancock and terrific line-ups of guests! I look forward to more.

I've been looking for a SC-specific environmental podcast for a while now...and here it is! It's produced well and data-driven. Good stuff!
