To save the world we need to change the story. Nature and the climate are in crisis. To survive we must use our most powerful tool - communication. Telling these stories can be difficult and dangerous. But done right they can change the world. Join environmental journalist Lucy Siegle (The Guardian, The One Show) and wildlife filmmaker Tom Mustill (Greta Thunberg/#NatureNow & BBC Natural History Unit) as they learn how to communicate better, from those who do it best. Legendary broadcaster Sir David Attenborough, former president of Ireland Mary Robinson, singer and activist Ellie Goulding, UN climate negotiator Christiana Figueres, Native American Veteran and Organizer Krystal Two-Bulls, and other master communicators all share their hard-earned insights. Informal, personal and passionate, these conversations will give you the tools to play your part, whether you’re phoning your dad, or addressing the United Nations.

    Pass The Mic

    Pass The Mic

    We have reached the finale of season one! Thank you so much for joining us on the journey so far. To celebrate, Lucy and Tom do something a bit different - they pass the mic to the next generation of nature and climate storytellers, photographers, reporters and filmmakers. We speak to young storytellers in a time of climate change and ecological catastrophe about how they feel, what they hope for and what they need. Starting with the talented and passionate students of Falmouth University, and then passing the mic abroad to young climate communicators across the world, with excerpts from the brilliant new book out this week; Together We Are Unstoppable. And if all that wasn't enough, there's room for a swim as well!

    This Shit Works!

    This Shit Works!

    We speak to two innovators who have taken unappealing subjects that nobody wants to talk about – sewage and bugs, respectively  - and made them compelling! Hugo Tagholm is the CEO of Surfers Against Sewage, the Cornish NGO that has morphed from single-issue crusty surfers’ organisation into a slick global outfit, responsible for changing the law on toxic waste, sewage treatment and plastic pollution. Driven by his fierce passion for the ocean and environmental justice, Hugo tells us how to choose the right tool for the job; be that an inflatable turd, or carefully drafted framework on banning single use plastics. Then we catch up with Tim Cockerill, the zoologist, broadcaster, flea circus impresario and insect wrangler for many flagship nature shows. The fact that insect populations are declining dramatically should worry us all. But many people don’t notice because they don’t like them. However Tim is on a mission to give insects an image makeover. He will stop at nothing to get them in the spotlight…and we mean nothing. Warning do no listen to this episode while eating.

    Guest: Bill McKibben: Author, Educator, Environmentalist & Founder of 350.org

    For years we have been told that the way we do things is set in stone. That we cannot change the system. But that is not true, and the system is collapsing. New stories are emerging: Green New Deals, Divestment from Fossil Fuels, global political movements like XR and Fridays For Future. We dig into how Stories and storytelling are at the heart of these changes with the man who has been dismantling old stories and building new ones to replace them, and focussing on his most impressive achievement to date: one hastening the demise of fossil fuels: the Divestment movement.

    Entertainment shows from broadcasting giants have incredible power to transmit ideas to huge audiences. Research shows that across countries, we pay more attention to TV on climate than we do to any other forms of media. But on the whole, big budget dramas and soaps remain silent. This week Lucy and Tom, (Coronation Street and Neighbours fans respectively) speak to the award-winning British screenwriter, Lisa Holdsworth about when and how TV drama will step up to the biggest story of our lives. Lisa is entertaining, brilliantly honest (especially about the commissioning process) and full of ideas about how this drama - the battle to get climate more screen-time – might play out. Spoiler: we’ll know we’ve succeeded when the climate crisis becomes a kitchen sink drama in Hebden Bridge, and the kitchen is flooded.

    Messages from the Frontline

    In the struggle to protect land, water and natural resources Indigenous people have always been on the frontline. 
    These conflicts effect us all - if the Amazon burns, if oil is drilled in the Arctic, if Indonesian forests are felled, we all face the dire consequences.
    These conflicts are increasingly violent. Hundreds of indigenous of activists are killed every year. Many more are threatened, imprisoned, attacked and silenced. 
    Despite their global importance and urgency we rarely hear these stories. This episode is about why, and what we can do about it. Most of all it is an opportunity to hear directly from someone on the frontline; Lottie Cunningham a lawyer and member of the Miskito people in Nicaragua whose lives and land are in dire trouble. 
    Ben Leather from the NGO Global Witness also join Lucy and Tom to give context for the silenced stories of indigenous land defenders worldwide.
