Welcome to The USA Podcast hosted by Mike Riley
Episode 153 March 17, 2021
Infrastructure is not often considered a sexy topic, but it is a topic that is extremely vital to the progress of America. Jackson, Mississippi is currently facing a water crisis due to their failing infrastructure. When Jackson was hit a couple of weeks ago by a severe storm, their infrastructure was not up to date and this left many of Jackson's residents without any clean drinking or bathing water. This is not just a problem in Jackson, but a problem all across America. All across America we are facing crumbling roads, bridges, dams, tunnels and many other things that are considered part of our infrastructure. Why is this? In tonight's episode, Mike speaks with Will Stribling of Mississippi Today about the water crisis facing Jackson, Mississippi as well as the bigger infrastructure issue facing the entire country.
