Today our guests run the gamut of water policy to Black community. We start with Max Gomberg, formerly staff to the CA State Water Quality Resources Control Board, now independent consultant on water affordability and resilience. With his decades of experience in his seasoned takes on water management, we fly at roughly 50,000 feet, considering the consequential water policy decisions being made on all levels of government.
In the second segment (minute 30:00) local activist and retired higher education administrator Pauline Merry brings her new autobiography, Growing Up in the Ville, in St Louis Missouri, recently released by Great Tales Told Well Publishing. With this genre of Black history, is an uncanny education on lives lived in all kinds of communities.
