The environmental movie podcast! We watch and discuss movies about the environment, movies that have environmental themes or in which nature plays a significant role. Hosted by Sean Munger (an environmental historian) and Cody Climer (a movie buff).
This one’s all about invasive species, from rabbits in the Pacific and lampreys in the Great Lakes to xenomorphs on LV-426 as we discuss this 1986 science fiction classic.
Lords of Dogtown
SoCal skate and surf culture, droughts, plastics, amusement park piers and amoeba-shaped pools are riding the nose in this 2005 skateboard sports drama.
Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon
The environmental record of imperial China, the Mongolian steppe and the gestalt of sad movies are in the trees as we examine this martial arts fantasy from 2000.
The Mosquito Coast
The environment of Central America, geothermal energy, intentional communities and white savior complex (again) are buzzing around this dark 1986 family drama.
The oil industry in Scotland is a wee bit of a gusher as we swim, beachcomb and stargaze our way through this 1983 comedy classic. Guest: Maco.
Archaeology, soils, rivers, the so-called “Dark Ages,” ship burials and the beginnings of World War II are ready to be excavated as we dig into this 2021 historical drama.
Worth a listen
A great show, only getting better
Informative and inspirational
This is a great idea for a podcast, and Sean and Cody really follow through on the concept. Plus they have a terrific, down-to-earth rapport with each other and their audience.
Great podcast! Entertaining and informative.
