Get EarthVoice Podcast on Air!
EarthVoice isn’t your average podcast – this is a unique audio storytelling project that will explore the role activism plays in the modern environmental movement by taking listeners onto the frontlines of some of the most cutting-edge environmental and animal rights campaigns. EarthVoice will combine creative storytelling techniques, innovative sound design, and investigative journalism to produce ten 30-minute radio documentaries (each to be divided into three 10-minute segments) that will be published on The Ecologist website, and also be freely available via Soundcloud, iTunes, and the EarthVoice website. We have some exciting subjects lined up so far, including the Black Mamba Anti-Poaching unit in South Africa, Wolf Patrol in the United States, and the Jane Goodall Institute’s global Roots & Shoots program.
Why is this project important?
We believe in the power of good stories to spread awareness, start important conversations, and create change. EarthVoice Podcast can help generate this change by taking listeners on incredible journeys with passionate activists working on crucial environmental and animal rights issues.
We decided to make a podcast because we know how busy our everyday lives can get. But you can listen to a podcast while you’re driving, cooking, or taking a walk. Podcasts are also easy to share with others!
