Texas is known for many things: the Alamo, armadillos and big slices of toast among them. And the output of oil and natural gas is a Texas-sized reality far exceeding the ten gallon hats you see on the guys driving the pick-up trucks. Oil energy is king, but natural gas exploration is a prince in waiting, and fracking is one way that gas may just take over the throne. Join Dan and Noelle as they talk to representatives of The News Outlet, a group that sent students to Texas to see what the future of fracking might be here, based on the years it has been done deep in the heart of fracking.
Guests: Tim Franciso, Youngstown State University; Doug Livingston, Chris Cotelesse and Nicole Stempak, journalists from The News Outlet. Special thanks to WKSU for the use of their studios for recording.
