Floof and Pupper Podcast

WE ARE HERE TO TALK ABOUT DOGS! Some dogs are doggos, some are puppers, and others may even be pupperinos. There are corgos and clouds, fluffers and floofs, woofers and boofers. The chunky ones are thicc, and the thin ones are long bois. When they stick out their tongues, they're doing a mlem, a blep, a blop. They bork. They boof. Once in a while they do each other a frighten. And whether they're 10/10 or 12/10, they're all h*ckin' good boys and girls. Check us out every Wednesday as we show those snooty cats exactly who is the goodest house-pet!

You don’t have to be a conservation biologist, a whitewater kayaker, or an obsessive composter to love Outside/In. It’s a show for anyone who has ever been outdoors. In short, it’s a show for *almost* everyone. Hosted by Sam Evans-Brown, Outside/In is a production of New Hampshire Public Radio.

The Beam Podcast
Do you hear the calls to fight climate change? The calls to mitigate its impact? To be more sustainable to preserve our planet for the generations to come? Sometimes, these calls leave us overwhelmed and confused. And at times, we still ask ourselves, ‘How should we deal with the changing climate?’, ‘What is our response? Is it fast enough?’, ‘How do we make sure that no one is left behind?' With the help of people of climate action around the globe, Anne-Sophie Garrigou, Editor-in-Chief of The Beam Magazine, and Anna Siwecka discuss how to include and inspire a greater number of people to participate in fighting climate change. They talk sustainable design, energy access and transition, women empowerment and more. They reach to the grassroots level, and go beyond cultures. And all of this, to stress the urgency of acting now and to equip us all in the tools needed to take action. Tune in to The Beam Podcast!

Climactic tells the stories of the people making a difference. Regular people like us, in a daily struggle to live sustainable lives. We want to be the people's voice on climate change, embedded in the community, from the perspective of the actual people. We want to hear these powerful stories. Are you a member of a community environmental group? Do you have knowledge of climate change? A regular person struggling to figure out your role? We'd love to help you tell your story.
