We know our readers love our alternative approach to making an end-of-the-year list of books. Instead of following the mainstream media and selecting books that have topped the sales lists during the year, we invite our readers to make a list of their own about Interesting Reading Areas (IRA). The idea is to look for areas of your interest for developing and knowledge gaining. And then look for relevant writers, books and DVD’s belonging to that IRA. You can read more about this approach here.
However, this year we decided to make a list of podcasts instead of the traditional IRA. You listen to podcasts to learn and the number of people listening to podcasts is continuously growing.
Podcasts have a rawness about them that offers listeners to understand what someone is saying and the emotion behind it. This approach gives listeners the opportunity to really understand what someone is saying and the emotion behind it.
Please note that we have not listened to these podcasts yet. We are simply making a list of podcasts that capture our interest when we looked for podcasts about Climate Change and the Environment, and Creativity and Innovation.
Podcasts about Climate Change and the Environment
Islands On Alert
The importance of looking at a problem from a different perspective has been a topic that has been stressed in our blog. The podcast AOSIS “Islands On Alert” gives you the chance to look at climate change from the perspective of small island nations. It is hosted by Andy Liburd who will talk about Small Island peoples’ fight against climate change impacts on their lives.
Mongabay is a nonprofit conservation and environmental science news platform that publishes content on climate change, wildlife and biodiversity, and Indigenous rights. They dig a bit deeper into these topics in their podcasts.
