The Deepwater Horizon offshore oil rig exploded in April of 2010. But it was 10 years ago this month that the oil began showing up on the shore.

Today on the Best of Our Knowledge, we’ll hear from a researcher and an emergency manager about the history of the BP Gulf Oil Spill.

We’ll also spend an Academic Minute recreating the spill in a lab.
