What if you knew how the world was going to end?
In this episode, we dive into the story of the Dust Bowl, which decimated 250,000 square miles of land in the United States in the 1930s, and Hugh Bennett, the man who saw it coming and tried to warn people—even when no one wanted to listen.
How do we use—and misuse—soil for our own ends? Are we missing the signs that another environmental catastrophe is on the way?
