The German eco-philosopher shares the secret life of trees, the hidden life of animals and the responsibilities of humans.

    “We have to bring more emotions into the process and the discussions about environmental things and climate change. Because when we just discuss the numbers, it’s emotionally so far away. It doesn’t touch your heart, just your mind.”

Introduction to Southern Residents

This podcast has unique content that will intruige activist veterans and newcomers alike. While obviously polemical (c'mon save the whales guys) Mark and his guests are academic and rigorous in their arguments for conservation. Give it a listen!
