    S3 E2: The Day After Tomorrow with Dr. Yanas Kisten of Geekoscopy

    S3 E2: The Day After Tomorrow with Dr. Yanas Kisten of Geekoscopy

    Seeing The Day After Tomorrow as a youth was probably the first time I was exposed to the idea of climate change. And 17 years later, this film remains one of the only major Hollywood productions to explicitly engage with the topic. For this special episode of Stories for Earth, I chatted with Dr. Yanas Kisten, a scientist and host of the podcast Geekoscopy, about one of our favorite disaster flicks: The Day After Tomorrow, directed by Roland Emmerich.

    Extra goodies:
