H2O Radio, This Week in Water
H2O Radio is journalism about water. Why? Because we’re all in this together.
What do you picture when you hear the word “water”? A cool, refreshing drink? A dip in a mountain lake? The beach? Perhaps you recall your morning shower, or watering your garden.
You probably didn’t picture power plants, your laptop, or that burger you ate for lunch, but water had a role in all three—and just about everything you do and consume. Water sustains us. It powers our cities, grows our crops and helps fabricate our products. Yet few people know where their water comes from, or that this ubiquitous little molecule is, in fact, a limited resource with increasing demands upon it.
We want to change what you picture when you think about water. How? By following water wherever it leads us and reporting on what we find. We’ll interview experts—from engineers and scientists to legislators and politicians in order to get the facts. But we’ll also talk to ordinary citizens to ask how water issues affect their lives. Why? Because we’re all in this together. This is a conversation about water and our collective water future.
