Think oil and gas stories are just for reporters in a few key states? Think again. There are more than 1.1 million active oil and gas wells in 36 states. On this podcast we’ll explore the dark side of the oil and gas boom with journalists who have investigated elements of the industry. Here’s the lineup:

  • Bob Marshall of The Lens discusses his reporting on “Losing Ground,” a multimedia project that visualizes and explains the deterioration of the Louisiana coastline.
  • Blake Morrison of Reuters talks about an investigation into Chesapeake Energy Corporation.
  • Ed Williams of KDNK, a community radio station in Colorado, explains how he investigated gas spills on private property.
