Today, we interview two guests. First up is Rev. Bob Miller, the pastor of the Emmanueal United Methodist Church in East Palestine, OH. Rev. Miller has pastored Emmanuel for a number of years and is a first person witness to the events that happened beginning February 3, 2023 in East Palestine. Rev. Miller learned of the derailment the day after it occurred and immediately went in to town to check on the church and his parishoners. What he found was shocking. In this first person account. Rev. Miller describes the events that led up to the derailment and how it has impacted both his parish and the town. Rev. Miller describes his interactions with Norfolk Southern's CEO as well as several observations he has on what should be done to prevent a catastrophe like this again in the future.

Our second guest, Ms. Judy Comeau-Hart is a part time development director for FaCT Ohio and joined in a roundtable discussion with Rev. Miller about the East Palestine derailment. Ms. Hart and Rev. Miller discuss the social impact of the derailment on the citizens of East Palestine and what people can be doing to pressure the Federal government to pass legislation that can help minimize the risks of these disasters from happening in the future.
