Jim Blackburn joins us for a two week series on the state of the Texas Coast.  The basis of the discussion is his annual “Holiday Coastal Newsletter, 2017”, and this takes us on a coast-long journey to visit issues that impact us all–from the devastation of Harvey to the hope for freshwater inflow obligations to keep our bays alive and resilient.  Podcast this set and listen to it over your year end travels.
