Interchange – The Best of Andy Mahler: Mick Harrison and Bloomington’s Toxic Waste Problem

This is the final show of our News Summit Special four-episode series “The Best of Andy Mahler.”

For tonight’s episode Mahler talks with Bloomington resident Mick Harrison, one of the nation’s foremost environmental and public interest attorneys representing whistleblowers, environmental advocates, and others who resist corporate and government malfeasance. The two pay special attention to how Westinghouse turned Bloomington into a toxic waste disaster area by dumping more than a million pounds of PCB-contaminated materials in and around Monroe County, and the decades-long efforts of Westinghouse (with EPA assistance) to avoid responsibility for cleaning it up.

Next week we’ll return to regular programming on Interchange when Doug Storm and Trish Kerle’ talk to composer and musician Lauren Bernofsky and author Scott Russell Sanders for a discussion on environmental awareness and the arts with a special focus on their current collaboration with The Cardinal Stage Company called The Breakfast Feast.
