A few weeks ago we traveled to Youngstown to get the scoop on natural gas drilling and the whole "fracking" thing. Is hydraulic fracturing akin to Satan or is it the God-given answer to Northeast Ohio's structural unemployment woes? We didn't strike any clear answers so we decided to dig for more--this time focusing on the economics. Join Dan as he counts the ways folks say fracking will benefit, or threaten, our regional economy.
Guests: Andrew Thomas, Cleveland State University; Caitlin Johnson, concerned and active citizen; Karl Henkel, Youngstown Vindicator.
