Water is the foundation for human life, but is it safe?

This summer, fellows from across the country and beyond are working together to determine whether water throughout the United States is safe to drink. And, if not, who’s responsible?

We meet some of the leaders, as well as the team’s data specialist, behind News21’s latest investigation.

Leonard Downie Jr. and Jacqueline Petchel will guide the 29 journalists as they hold decision makers accountable and give voice to unheard communities.

This is the first episode in the podcast series, which is part of a major multimedia project to be published in August.

We will bring you fair and accurate information straight from the source … unfiltered.
