Canada’s National Observer is already the country’s most trusted voice in climate journalism. Now, it has a new podcast: Race Against Climate Change. With just nine years until 2030, we need to move fast to avert climate catastrophe. So what are we going to do about it? Race Against Climate Change brings you the stories and solutions you won’t hear anywhere else.
Episode 2: Where we live
The climate crisis is in our backyards. It’s not a matter of if our neighbourhoods will be hit, it’s a matter of how. Canada’s National Observer founder Linda Solomon Wood sits down with the most famous family duo in Canadian climate action, David Suzuki and Severn Cullis-Suzuki. Plus, Montreal’s deadly urban heat islands, and the gargantuan task of retrofitting every building in Canada’s biggest city.
Episode 1: How We Eat
Everybody’s gotta eat, but who’s feeding us, and what else are we eating up along the way? In this episode we chew on the ways our food affects our climate, and what can be done about it. Professor and author Lenore Newman discusses food security and this summer’s heat dome with National Observer founder Linda Solomon Wood. Plus, the surge in regenerative farming in Canada, and a future of real beef with no real cows. Yes, you read that right.
Join your hosts, Shaghayegh, Linda & Polly as they kick off the 'Race Against Climate Change.' Over the next 6 episodes, they will introduce you to the people who are deploying creativity, innovation, and a touch of genius to avert runaway climate catastrophe. The Observer team investigates how this crisis challenges us to rethink our lives and the systems that shape them. They’re not shying away from the urgency: from how we all eat, to the way we move, power our lives and how we envision pathways to the future, they cover it all!

Race Against Climate Change - How We Eat
This informative podcast educated me about the extreme contributions of our agriculture sector to climate change - the very problem that is decimating farm production thus threatening food security for everyone. It was uplifting to listen to agricultural and consumer opportunities that are really quite simple practices to protect the environment, enhance farm productivity and enhance the food safety and security. I can’t wait for episode 2 of this series!
In depth conversation
Really in depth conversation, I learned a lot about our food contribution to climate change, even though I’m following this topic.
Polly and Shaghayegh talk about where we are now, what we do to tackle issues, what can be done better. Knowledgeable guests, insightful discussions, new developments in the fields.
