About Broken Ground
Broken Ground is a podcast by the Southern Environmental Law Center digging up environmental stories in the south that don’t always get the attention they deserve, and giving voice to the people bringing those stories to light. Named a "New & Noteworthy" podcast by Apple for 6 weeks in a row.
Broken Ground has a five-star rating on Apple Podcasts.
This is the best new podcast I’ve heard in a long time. There aren’t nearly enough stories being told about environmental issues, particularly in the south, and you’ll realize after listening to just one of these episodes what we’ve all been missing. Could not recommend strongly enough.
I was hooked from episode one
I am an avid podcast listener. I love all kinds of podcasts with great stories. This is definitely one that got me hooked from the first episode. I keep checking back for the next episodes because I am truly looking forward to learning more and hearing about true people’s stories.
Enlightening, moving, important, and just highly competent and compelling all around. Can’t wait for the next one!
Listened to podcast about coal ash. Whoa! Powerful delivery, excellent reportage, excellent production values. I eagerly await additional episodes!
