Hazard Podcast - New Jersey: Trailer

New podcast series highlights the intersection of pollution and climate change in the Garden State. Coming May 18.

The Hazard Podcast, coming soon!

They’re the most polluted places in the country, and no state has more than New Jersey.

There are 114 toxic Superfund sites scattered across the Garden State, and that number is growing. As cleanup efforts drag on for those sites, in some cases for nearly 40 years, climate change is reshaping the ways in which their pollution may threaten people living nearby.

Hazard NJ is a new podcast that digs through the muck of each contaminated site to give a clearer picture of what the threat is and what it will take to clean it up before it’s too late. Hosted by journalist Jordan Gass-Poore’ and produced by NJ Spotlight News, Hazard NJ is a limited series with the first episode coming on May 18.
