Stark truth made easier to understand

Alex connects the dots and asks great questions of leading climate and environment experts. He doesn’t gloss over the bad news but also presents the good news of people trying to live healthier smarter ways in this world messed up by greed, colonialism, and impatience.

The Very Best of my 1000+ Podcast Subscriptions!!!

This is the most important podcast I listen to. It tops all the other 1000+ pods I subscribe to.

A top climate change communicator with a gift for clarity, Canadian Alex Smith does his homework to ask the most intelligent questions of his interviewees, who are also the world's top experts.

All of us are going to affected by climate change, eventually threatening global food and water supplies. If the European refugee situation isn't bad enough, just imagine 20 million climate refugees. If you do not have food and water, nothing else in your life matters.

This is not a wandering chat, nor a gloom and doom surrender. Radio Ecoshock focuses on the latest research and points you towards what you can do for everybody's children.
