It's been a long time, but Earth & Industry Radio's "Gang of Four" - Tim Hurst, Jeff McIntire-Strasburg, Maria Surma Manka, and me, David Wescott - got together for a Skype chat / podcast to discuss the political deal that everyone in DC is talking about.
Congress and the Administration finally agreed on a deal that raises the country's debt limit and significantly cuts government spending. The Washington Post provided the best explanation I could find on the overall deal here and POLITICO gave some details on the deal's impact on energy programs here.
We wanted to focus on the deal's implications for environmental policy and then on what environmental advocates could do to ensure their priorities are met moving forward. It's not a long podcast - about 12:25 - and we hope you enjoy.
