Living Downstream: The Salton Sea / New Arrivals: Alex Harris

Ways To Subscribe

Today, we’re bringing you an episode of a new podcast from Northern California Public Media called Living Downstream, looking at environmental justice issues around the world. Last week, we brought you an episode about air pollution in West Oakland. This time, we’re going to the biggest lake in California, which is now starved of water. We hear how it impacts the health of the people who live around it. We begin with Adriana Torres, who lives in a rural community there, an area called North Shore. We'll also hear from her classmate Rosa Gonzalez. And Oakland author Alex Harris reads from his new book, "Birds of Lake Merritt."
