    Fantastic educational resource

    I was looking for a broad overview of water economics/policy, and resource management, and I found it.

    Though I have a degree in environmental science, I’ve been leading soldiers in the army for the last five years and am now preparing to move into the corporate world this summer. As I pursue a career in the water business, it is amazing to hear executives from top consulting and design-build companies discuss today’s most important water issues.

    In the past week I’ve listen to your first 15 episodes during my commutes and I can’t wait to listen to the next 50. Keep them coming!

    Thanks for your hard work.
