My heroes! Brilliant reporting

Really?

Who reviewed the poor offering regarding Lake Mead and Climate Change prior to posting? The episode could have been turned in by 3rd graders for a book report. Sadly, it would have only scored a c+, and that only if the child was also on a soccer scholarship. Please a little more science and rigor in your future offerings.

These journalists really get out and walk around their subjects’ surroundings; they bring us with them into “real” conversations (and like all conversation, there are vivid and blurry narratives). Whether sure footed on familiar turf or clumsy like toddlers in foreign parts, the effect is the same, overall… we follow trains of thought that reveal the hosts’ legitimate humanity.
