What Matters Water Podcasts
What Matters Water TV + Podcast presents engaging and timely conversations about water. We’re excited to present informative, engaging and sometimes humorous stories about the one element we all need for life…water.
Join SCWC Executive Director and series host Charley Wilson as he talks to the most interesting and innovative people working in California water today.
Water news in Southern California often gets overshadowed by other pressing issues such as homelessness, traffic congestion, and housing affordability stories. Water is just as important for life as housing, but very rarely do water issues rise to crisis levels in Southern California. That is a testament to the region’s decades of investment in water supply reliability. But this reliability also means that positive developments and potential solutions may be easily overlooked by people who are otherwise interested in regional issues. Southern California Water Coalition believes we can help bring these stories to life through our Water Matters Water TV and podcast.
