Eric Holthaus is a leading climate journalist and the founder of CURRENTLY, a weather and news service that recently joined the OptOut network. He is also the author of the speculative nonfiction book The Future Earth: A Radical Vision for What's Possible in the Age of Warming. I spoke with him about climate journalism and his latest effort to create a safe online space for climate action: Project Mushroom.
Please enjoy this free podcast episode, which we're releasing just to you, our audience, before it goes out to the general public.
Future episodes will be available in full only to recurring donors to the OptOut Media Foundation, which is funded almost entirely by individual contributions from listeners like you.
Support Project Mushroom! Their Kickstarter ends on Dec. 15.
See you next week!
