Electric Futures, Podcast Series on Lithium Extraction in Imperial Valley, Launches

The USC Annenberg Center for Climate Journalism and Communication (CCJC) announced today the launch of Electric Futures, a podcast series exploring lesser known stories of the energy transition, from the perspectives of the people most impacted by the changes that transition will bring. Over six episodes in season one, Charles Zukoski, former USC provost and current Viterbi professor of engineering, gets to know people living and working in a corner of Southern California rich with community – and critical minerals – on the brink of a transformation so big, it could reverberate across the globe.
