DorobekInsider: Hear about EPA’s radon program for yourself

with 5 comments

I’ve been telling you about EPA’s innovative program for eliciting radon public service announcements — a government 2.0 way of reaching out to folks. (Don’t know what radon is? EPA has info here.) I’ve mentioned the radon video program here… and here… and here… Add one more to this list…

Today on Federal News Radio’s Daily Debrief with Chris Dorobek and Amy Morris, we had Tom Kelly is Director of EPA’s Indoor Environments Division, and Jeremy Ames is with EPA’s Indoor Environments Division, who came up with the program. You can hear the interview here. [.mp3]

They both did a really great job.
