In this episode, Bethany goes deep with Eliza Griswold, Pulitzer Prize winning author of Amity & Prosperity. They discuss the upside and downside of progress told through the lens of energy. Technological innovations like fracking are destructive at the very same time that they are also drivers of opportunity, political power, and wealth (for some). This is a classic tale of progress and disruption going hand in hand. It’s also a terrific primer for those who don’t REALLY understand as much about the fracking controversy as they wish they did.
