Climate bills cut

Anchor Beach — Milford, Conn.

Anchor Beach — Milford, Conn.

A handful of climate bills failed to pass in Connecticut this legislative session. At least 16 chemical drums have been discovered at Bethpage Community Park so far. Peconic Bay Scallop numbers are still a concern for scientists. A fiery head-on crash closed both sides of the Merritt Parkway for hours Thursday morning. And WSHU’s new podcastOff the Plank brings us a pirate story of one of the biggest treasures in recorded history.

Sabrina is host and producer of WSHU’s daily podcast After All Things. She also produces the climate podcast Higher Ground and other long-form news and music programs at the station. Sabrina spent two years as a WSHU fellow, working as a reporter and assisting with production of The Full Story.
