Season two of the “Clean Water Pod” podcast will focus on nutrient-related success stories from across the country. To set the stage for this topic, host Jeff Berckes kicks off the first episode by speaking with two professors about the role of the commonly found nutrients, nitrogen and phosphorus, in water quality.

To learn about the impacts of nitrogen, Berckes is joined by Jamie Vaudrey, assistant research professor with the Department of Marine Sciences at the University of Connecticut, and also research coordinator for NOAA’s Connecticut National Estuarine Research Reserve. He then discusses phosphorus with James (Jim) Cotner, professor of ecology, evolution and behavior at the University of Minnesota.

All episodes of the Clean Water Pod are available on Apple PodcastsSpotify and Google Podcasts.
