In this week’s episode of “OPB Politics Now,” we’re talking about the politics of wildfire.

Fires are getting bigger, fire season is lasting longer and it turns out the way we’ve been fighting fires for much of the last century was wrong.

OPB political reporters Lauren Dake and Jeff Mapes talk to OPB environmental reporter Tony Schick about smoke management, letting fires burn and what might be the new normal.
