Today we’re concluding the previews of our podcast Living Downstream. Producers Annie Ropeik and Nicholas Janzen bring us the story of a public housing project in East Chicago, Indiana.
It was built on a lead-and-arsenic polluted Superfund site. Residents like Keisha Daniels were left in limbo after the projects were shuttered.
Hear the whole story, "Living with Lead" on our website.
