This week’s guest is Nick Mott. Nick is an award winning journalist and podcast producer based in Livingston, and the editor of this podcast. Over the last several months he’s published a series of articles with High Country News documenting the catastrophic Yellowstone floods that occurred in June 2022.
In this episode Justin and Nick talk about the varying devastation of the floods, the politics of floodplains and the pressure the floods brought to bear on an already stressed housing system. Nick talks being evacuated and how he came to report on an event with such personal ties. Justin and Nick also explore the ecological benefits of flooding, and balancing the needs of safety and resilience.
