3x01 The sound of West Africa's changing climate
How does climate change sound?
We interview Martin Parker, Prof Doug Parker, Prof Benjamin Lamptey and Freddy Gadrie, who transformed climate information from Ghana and Niger into music through data sonification.
Using data from the past and climate projections of the future, this team of curious scientists and musicians use a different approach to communicate climate change and raise awareness of the future impacts of changes in climate and weather patterns.
We hope you enjoy it!

2x07 Climate change and the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, with Prof Mike Tipton and Paloma Trascasa-Castro
The Tokyo 2020 Olympic officially kicked off on July 23rd against the controversial backdrop of surging covid-19 cases and an eerily quiet Tokyo city. On top of this, there are mounting concerns and evidence of how climate change related extreme heat and high levels of humidity are posing risks and impacting athletes at these Olympic games.
The Rings of Fire report published in May 2021 and produced by the British Association for Sustainable Sport (BASIS) brings together scientists and athletes to discuss these risks and impacts. We sit down with two authors of the report: our very own Paloma Trascasa-Castro, PhD researcher from the Institute for Climate and Atmospheric Science, at the University of Leeds; and Mike Tipton, Professor of Human and Applied Physiology from the Extreme Environments Laboratory, at the University of Portsmouth.
2x06 The IPCC's Sixth Assessment Report | Behind the scenes with Dr Amanda Maycock
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's (IPCC) is the United Nations body for assessing the science of climate change. During the last 4 years, scientists from around the world have been working on the Sixth Assessment Report (AR6), that will provide key information about the current state of climate change, future projections, adaptation and mitigation.
Dr Amanda Maycock, Associate Professor in Climate Dynamics at the University of Leeds, has been a lead author in Working Group I, which assesses the physical science basis of climate change. She shares with us her experience as a first time lead IPCC author and a sneak peek of AR6.
The Climate Press presents: Climate Strike
A documentary inspired by the Fridays for Future climate strikes originally broadcast on BCB Radio as part of the Bradford Science Festival
Written, produced, edited, and presented by Tom Wood twitter.com/TomWoodScience
The documentary features many interviews with protestors at last year’s Fridays For Future climate strikes. Tom spoke to representatives of the Green Party of England and Wales, Population Matters, Stand Up To Racism, NHS in Leeds doctors, a vegan campaign group, International Marxist Tendency (IMT) amongst others.
Importantly, Tom also spoke to young people to gather their perspectives on the climate crisis.
Tom interviewed a representative of Bradford Council, which recently declared a #ClimateEmergency, to understand the local government response.
Tom also discussed the recent Leeds Climate Commission Citizen’s Assembly with scientific advisor, Dr Cat Scott, and spoke to Dr Leighton Regayre about the implications of the pandemic on the way we conduct climate science and on the wider society.
The documentary features music exclusively from @listeningsessionsuk and @futurepastzine affiliated artists.

2x05 A podcast on how to make a podcast
On this episode we share with you some tips and tricks on how to start you own podcast from scratch without any previous experience. From advice on web hosts to the podcast edition process, we interview ourselves and talk about our own experiences with The Climate Press, how did we start, how did we find our guests, our blogs, etc. At the end all you need is a good idea and willingness to make it happen!
We hope you enjoy it, and remember: make love, not CO2!
