This Week’s Episode: Water

This week on Audio Files: Water. What do gourmet ice cubes, the human microbiome and the Verrazano-Bridge have in common? Water. Today on AudioFiles we explore how co-operative businesses helped the Rockaways get back on their feet after Sandy. We look at how plastic bags and other trash from the Bronx River ends up in our food. How rogue scientists and engineers are designing infrastructure that can both withstand and protect cities from rising tides.
AudioFiles is a podcast produced by the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism in New York City.
