Jobs? In this apocalypse? It’s more likely than you think. It’ll also be more likely if we would just PAY ATTENTION to the ocean. That’s what Dr. Jason Scorse taught Nature N8 as his professor: protecting our seas is good for the economy.Jason is the Director of the Center for the Blue Economy, and a professor at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies, where N8 did his Master’s! During their conversation, N8 and Jason talk about the U.S. ocean policy, blue jobs, veganism, and how each and every one of us needs to take action in this climate movement.Support “Waste Not Why Not” on Patreon.

You’ve heard about this. Bees are dying. And we’re gonna go down with them. But maybe you haven’t heard that life in the ocean is just as crucial for human survival as those on land.  This episode, Nature N8 speaks with Dr. Enric Sala about his new book: The Nature of Nature - Why We Need the Wild, which lays out precisely how we are integrated in this planet’s wondrous and irreplaceable ecosystem. Dr. Enric Sala was a professor at the Scripps Institute of Oceanography, now working full time in conservation as a National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence. The Nature of Nature synthesizes his decades of research on ecology, and provides an accessible introduction for people who want to learn more about our natural world. In this conversation, N8 and Dr. Sala talk about hope in marine protected areas, swimming with sharks in California, and the marvelous message of the Church of Plankton. Support “Waste Not Why Not” on Patreon.

Nature N8 reads a book and talks about it with the author! This book is a mix of nature writing and memoir, that follows the narrator through Taiwan’s landscape and history. Born from an immigrant family that moved across 3 continents within 3 generations, Jessica uses her training in natural history to uncover her connections to Taiwan. Jessica J. Lee is a British-Canadian-Taiwanese author based in Berlin. In this episode, she chats candidly about her feelings as an outsider/insider, her hikes in Taiwanese mountains, and the subtle politics of ecology and nature writing. Two Trees Make a Forest (Catapult, 304 pages) comes out in the U.S. on August 4th. Get your copy from your local bookstores, or find it online at Bookshop.org. Special thanks to Jessica for reaching out to us! Subscribe to “Waste Not a Newsletter" on Substack.
