Ron Placone tours nationally as a stand-up appearing at clubs, colleges, theaters and everything in between. He also speaks for colleges and advocacy groups with his one-man performance lecture on Battling Political Apathy. In this episode we discuss the theme of this master’s thesis – fracking and the role that media plays in environmental issues. Ron gives us some interesting insight from his first-hand experiences and has suggestions for how we can make fracking a thing of the past.
