Our guest today is Jonathan Thompson, a Contributing Editor at High Country News and the author of River of Lost Souls: The Science, Politics and Greed Behind the Gold King Mine Disaster. In his new book, this award-winning investigative environmental journalist digs into the science, politics, and greed behind the 2015 Gold King Mine disaster, and details the environmental, economic and social impacts wrought by a century and a half of mining, energy development, and fracking in southwestern Colorado.
Jonathan is a native Westerner with deep roots in southwestern Colorado. He owned and edited the Silverton Standard & the Miner newspaper in the tiny town of Silverton, Colo., and was the editor-in-chief of High Country News from 2007 to 2010. After that he lived in Berlin, Germany, and then was a Ted Scripps fellow in environmental journalism at the University of Colorado in Boulder. In 2016, Jonathan was awarded the Society of Environmental Journalist’s Outstanding Beat Reporting, Small Market.
