Minicast 5 – Gulf in Crisis
MiniCast 5 : Gulf in Crisis!
A mini episode of the podcast focused on the situation in the Gulf of Mexico since the BP Deepwater Horizon spill and the deteriorating health of those involved in the cleanup. Including some of the heartbreaking audio of Jennifer Rexford, who was hired by BP to help with cleanup efforts and is now dying from exposure to the toxic chemicals the company used to sink and break up the oil spill, the show examines reports from her and Al Jazeera sources that reveal the health crisis thousands in the Gulf are now facing as a result of these dispersants. And with reports of a new oil slick being investigated in the Gulf now, the situation for those in the region seems to be on a devastating and deadly course.
