BURN: An Energy Journal

Broadcast Times: Saturday, 6am on 93.9FM, Saturday, 2pm on AM820 and Sunday, 7am on AM820, 8pm on AM820.

The nation’s electric grid – a half century-old patchwork system that moves electricity from plants to consumers – is central to our daily lives. Most of us rarely give it a second thought until something goes wrong.

BURN’s hour-long special examines the state of America’s aging  and often over-burdened electric power grid – the people who keep it up and running, innovators who are constantly thinking of ways to make the grid smarter, and what happens when the grid lets us down.
