Description

Episode 5 - The Air We Breathe

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 considers the importance of clean air and its interconnectedness with climate justice. We hear from Chisara Agor – a multi-disciplinary musician and sound artist from London whose work raises awareness of UK air pollution and the intersections of class, race and politics – who talks to climate justice activists Nyeisha Mallett and Elizabeth Yeampierre of UPROSE in New York, an organisation that puts Black and Indigenous voices at the heart of the climate emergency. We also hear work by poet Daisy Lafarge, whose collection Life without Air ponders the fragility of air and its effect on both our psyche and the climate.

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