Truth to Power Podcast: THE OVERWHELM

Truth to Power Podcast: THE OVERWHELM


Produced by Isadora Millay, THE OVERWHELM is part 3 of the Almeda fire series and features interviews from 4 diverse community members who have each uniquely experienced Almeda. THE OVERWHELM focuses on what Jackson County’s community faces as it continues to heal from the fire: a lack of low-income housing, exposed inequities within the valley, a mass forgetting, the reality of climate change, and the need for continued support–especially emotional. You can listen to THE OVERWHELM here.

You can listen to Part 1 of the Almeda Fire series: AN UNNATURAL DISASTER here, and Part 2 of the Almeda fire series: Fire, Fire! here.
