Taylor Quimby started at NHPR as a weekend board operator in 2010, and has been ferociously climbing his way up the corporate ladder ever since. Currently, he is Senior Producer of Word of Mouth and Outside/In, as well as Broadcast Producer for the nationally distributed debate program, Intelligence Squared US. Individually, he has produced important stories about topics like MySpace, men’s underwear, and the zombie apocalypse. Taylor is a semi-lapsed comic-book nerd with a candy "problem", has played the ukulele since before it was cliché, and Sam likes to make fun of him because he runs in those weird-looking toe-shoes.

A carbon offset is a simple premise: if you take a cross-country flight and are responsible for a half ton of carbon emissions, spend a few dollars to fund the growth of a half ton worth of carbon in the form of a forest. A fossil fuel company can do the same: buy offsets to write off emissions and call it green. But is this just another form of greenwashing? Do carbon offsets bring us closer to carbon-neutrality? Featuring Kaarsten Turner Dalby, Heather Furman, Charlie Stabolepszy, Barbara Haya, Jim Shallow, and Adeniyi Asiyanbi. Sign up for the Outside/In newsletter. Every two weeks we’ll send you episode extras, occasional call-outs to participate in our episodes, and our reading list.
Throughout the 20th century, conservationists and environmentalists have looked to protect wildlife and biodiversity through the creation of parks and other forms of exclusionary wildlife zones. Zones that seek to preserve spaces devoid of human impact - or to create them, by displacing indigenous and poor people who already live there. Today, some academics call this strategy by a pejorative name: Fortress conservation. In this episode, we look at medieval forest law, the early days of Yellowstone National Park, and spreading concern over how conservation efforts are enacted and enforced around the world.
