New Podcast 'Terrestrial' Makes Climate Change Personal
Journalist Ashley Ahearn of Earthfix is the host of a new social-environmental podcast launched in May. Produced by Puget Sound Public Radio (KUOW), Terrestrial is a quirky and personal, yet "science-rich" podcast exploring the social implications of climate change.
Each episode will explore a personal question through the lens of the environment and climate change. Questions like: “Should we have kids, given where the planet’s headed?” or “Does environmental protest work and is it worth it?”
The show draws out the private side of the global environmental crisis with frankness and sensitivity; its second episode tackles "the environmental impact of modern death rituals" and the possibility of composting human bodies.
