Episode 4 - Veins of the Planet

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 enters the veins of the planet: its rivers, waterways and oceans. Artist Carolina Caycedo discusses the effects that large dams have on ecosystems across the globe; whilst legal expert Erin O’Donnell talks about the fight to grant rivers the same rights as humans; and poet Alexis Pauline Gumbs asks us to consider what it might mean to become an apprentice to a marine mammal.

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