Hello, unEarthed readers! I’d like to introduce you to a new Earthjustice production designed to keep you up-to-date on the latest Earthjustice litigation news. It’s a podcast called EJ90. And the best part is that it’s only 90 seconds, so you can quickly get updates on wildlife protection, natural resource conservation, and environmental health and safety news, all before you start your day. You can also subscribe to EJ90 on iTunes and make it part of your daily podcast listening routine.
So far, EJ90 has covered everything from Arctic drilling to Obama’s decision to undermine the EPA’s ozone standards. Here’s a roundup of the latest EJ90 podcasts:
