On this week’s FIRE podcast, Dr. Robert Brinkmann, Professor Of Geography at the University of South Florida, talks with host Arin Greenwood about sinkholes: why Florida is full of them, the problems with current sinkhole policy, and what he wishes people understood about these fascinating geologic phenomena.
