Exploding Heritage Documentary

In conjunction with BobEdwardsRadio.com and our own BobEdwards.Info, over the next few weeks we’re going to post “the documentaries,” the special programs built to perform a deep-dive into a specific issue. Once they are posted here, the files will be made available to those two websites so they may update the existing links to the programs. It’s past-time these were available for those searching to hear them again.

Next up, we have the story of mountain-top removal mining, Exploding Heritage. From the introduction:

The Appalachian Mountains are nearly 300-million years old—America’s oldest—and they’ve survived everything nature has thrown at them. But they might not survive man. Using a mixture of ammonium nitrate and fuel oil, mining companies are blowing up mountains to get to the valuable coal deep inside. Today on The Bob Edwards Show, “Exploding Heritage,” the controversy over mountaintop removal coal mining.

Powerful when first aired, it is equally relevant today. Produced by Andy Danyo Kubis, script/roadmap included.
