203. Dr Marc Edwards on Exposing the Flint Water Crisis

In today's episode, host Marc Clair is joined by Dr. Marc Edwards, the civil engineer who led the study which exposed dangerously high levels of lead in the water in Flint, Michigan. Before we dig into his work in Flint, Dr. Edwards explains why he first pursued the field of civil engineering, with the idea that he could help people with little foreseeable incentive to pursue an unethical path. He then touches on his first encounter with a government cover-up of a water supply in Washington, D.C., and then gets into his most recent work on the Flint crisis. 

Dr. Edwards breaks down the events which lead to the poisoning of the water in Flint, and why it took a phone call to him from a concerned mother to finally get the ball rolling on uncovering the easily foreseeable health crisis. Marc and Marc discuss what drives people to make unethical decisions, and why a focus on ethics and heroism is needed if we are gong to see institutions which are held accountable for their actions. 

Enjoy this very special interview with a true hero!
