Fixing the Grid: Our Relationship With Electricity

Journalists Richard Davies and Jim Meigs discuss strengthening the grid, re-imaging it according to modern values, and our relationship with electricity with cultural anthropologist and MPIWG Visiting Scholar Gretchen Bakke, author of "The Grid: The Fraying Wires Between Americans and Our Energy Future."

According to Gretchen, "It's not just that electricity is a modern marvel, it almost starts to feel like a natural right. With the pandemic, we really feel how important electricity is to being connected with the world. Everything is plugged in."
