    Oil and Water is a podcast that slows down to ask questions about our relationship with oil and the fossil fuel industry. Keystone XL has been held up in court in Great Falls, but construction continues. Nearby Indigenous communities on the Fort Peck Reservation are speaking out about the risks, and their Council Chairman Lance Four Star says their voices aren’t being heard. But the story of an industrial project putting Indigenous people at risk is not new: the context is as deep as the history of white settlement in North America. How are communities and individuals across the continent reevaluating their relationships with petroleum, and how is the controversy that surrounds Keystone XL about something much larger?
