This is a 12 minute audio segment from National Public Radio, interviewing a scientist who was hoping to do research on the oil spill to learn how to better deal with large spills in the future. However, he was being stonewalled because the corporations would prefer that this sort of thing be left unknown for liability reasons.
It was from about two weeks ago, but I forgot to post it then. I imagine by now they successfully stonewalled him. But it is still interesting.

(Both links should lead to the same thing, though the podcast version has a bit more show information packaged with the file. I figured I’d post both in case one doesn’t work and I don’t notice.)
