The Indy is the Santa Barbara Independent’s podcast, hosted by Molly McAnany. On this week’s episode, we’re celebrating Earth Week. The Point Conception Institute at the Jack and Laura Dangermond Preserve has formally launched this year, and our host speaks with Dr. Mark Reynolds and Dr. Rae Wynn-Grant about this unique living laboratory and the future of conservationist research. Then Indy reporter Alexandra Goldberg sits down with Joshua Haggmark, the City of Santa Barbara water resources manager, about the city’s diversified water sources that have supported us through the statewide drought.

This podcast was underwritten in part by the Mickey Flacks Journalism Fund for Social Justice, a proud and innovative supporter of local news. To make a contribution, go to To sponsor The Indy, contact
