A podcast exploring water INequity in Texas

The Gulf Between explores the historic roots and present realities of water-related inequity in Texas. It tries to catch a glimpse of the future trajectory of the region, find out where there’s genuine hope, and identify where there’s ongoing concern.

The show features a series of interviews with experts and community leaders who have spent years tackling water and environmental equity issues in Texas and beyond. Each episode explores a topic critical to the region’s future including: community buyouts, water affordability, infrastructure inequity, ecosystem restoration, access to nature, indigenous communities, collective memory, and community engagement. The power of water to both sustain and destroy flows through it all.
