Episode 2: Into the Soil

Climate Frequencies is a new series of the BALTIC Podcast that listens to the climate emergency and its reverberations through the ears of artists, thinkers and activists.

We begin deep in the molten core of the earth, tunnel through the rock formations under our feet before burrowing up to the soil and land, through forests, and out to the oceans ascending to our final episode into the air we breathe.

In this episode, musician and artist Natalie Sharp thinks about the soil crisis, land ownership, our relationship with the land and how communities are fighting against extractivist companies and governments not only for land access and ownership, but for their ancestral relationship to the soil itself.

Artist Jade Montserrat discusses her work Clay, Peat and Cage (2015) and talks to creative climate-justice activist Suzanne Dhaliwal about access to land and how local communities can fight back against extractivist regimes.

Artist Emily Hesse explores our connection and relationship with land, sharing her text Inhabit.

Presented by Natalie Sharp. Produced and sound designed by Femi Oriogun-Williams and exec produced by Alannah Chance for Reduced Listening.
