The US Interior Department is rethinking the ways it has managed big corporate solar on public lands, and we have opinions. Chris pontificates based on his many years of covering public lands renewable energy as a recovering journalist, and Alicia interrupts his solarsplaining once in a while to inject some non-jargon-ridden analysis.
We love solar! We want it in our backyards! And we want to protect desert habitat from industrial development. We can do both.
Also: we announce a new project, a special project podcast focusing on the wonderful Amargosa Basin in Nevada and California. More on that soon.

The album Chris mentions in the closing notes can be purchased here, with all proceeds going to the artist.
