Please listen

We Are Rivers is an eloquently detailed podcast reviewing the past, present, and perspective futures of rivers focusing on the political and ethical conversation surrounding the Colorado River Basin. Tackling some of the hard conversations between environmental concerns and resource management this podcast is a dose of reality about an unstable future.

Way too Western

Overall very good, but far to Western focused. There are other important watersheds besides the Colorado. There are issues affecting just as many people in the Southeast. Though nationwide groups don’t give as much attention to the South in all ways, so it’s not surprising.

Binge-listen worthy

Just discovered this podcast and am nearly all the way through all 12 episodes created to date. I enjoy the mix of historical background, politics, personal story, and activism. Though it may lean a little to the conservationist side (which speaks to me), it’s generally unbiased and provides a god comprehensive viewpoint. Would love to learn more about other river basins going through the same struggles.
