Climate Change and Local Hope!!

The smackdown episode of Stepping Up has it all! A sense of place, great characters, narrative tension, a wonderful lead voice (Andres Soto), clever turns and a hopeful conclusion that makes one feel that there are things to be done. What an amazing achievement in a podcast about climate change!! Claire Schoen leaves no question or doubt unaddressed. This is really worth a listen!

Personalizing the struggle

This is the only podcast I’ve heard that’s tackling the most crucial issues of our time. If we’re going to survive climate change it will be because people like producer Claire Schoen have the courage, skill and commitment to tell the stories that will reach hearts and minds. This is not about polemics but about the rich, human stories that let us know how much is truly at stake.

Delivers what's missing in the Climate story

So much of what I hear about climate change is overly technical and often leaves me with a hopeless feeling. Stepping Up is a refreshing way to engage on the issue. It brings us the flesh and blood emotions and commitment of the people making a stand — and often making trouble — so we don't lose sight of what's at stake. It also doesn't hurt that Stepping Up is a show that's as pleasing to the ear as it is important to the cause.
