Climate Follies is comedy about the unfunniest thing ever: the climate crisis. A dozen short plays (and counting) explore our unraveling climate system and the human response — or lack thereof.
In Climate Follies Podcast, your host is director/producer Raphael Schwartzman. He leads playwright Jim Poyser and a rotating cast of artists to workshop, dissect, and fart around about the short plays that compose the Climate Follies stage play.
Tune in to laugh, cry, and soothe your existential dread about the global catastrophe that impacts all of us.
Our first workshop spells doom for students, parents, and teachers as three Indiana second graders face realities the adults aren't even prepared for - plus more than one silent P! The crew riffs on how we're ruining the next generation, from the merits and dangers of homeschooling to hunting children for sport - metaphorically...right?

Everybody screws up sometimes, right? I forget to turn off the light. You leave the door unlocked. We collectively impact our environment on a global scale that drives our planet on an accelerating trajectory towards climatic cataclysm and death.
Oops! We're only human. Whatcha gonna do, amiright?!?
