Last April, the Deepwater Horizon rig exploded and spewed 4.9 million gallons of oil into the Gulf of Mexico. We listen to a range of voices today, from the trouble shooter in charge to the watermen. Coast Guard Admiral Thad Allen is the man who gave daily reports on the many attempts to stop the leak. And for about 4 months last spring and summer he wasn’t just reporting the news of the spill: he was the news. Also in this episode, Byron Encalade is the president of the Louisiana Oystermen Association. Both he and his brother Stanley Encalade were counting on big hauls from their oysters beds ... just before the well blew.
