I am the host and producer of Storytelling Animals, a podcast where I use books to help make sense of the ecological crisis – and think about what comes next. For most episodes, I interview authors about their new or recent fiction and nonfiction, and talk about how we might build better relations with each other and our fellow creatures.

Patreon subscribers at all tiers get early access to locked episodes, and Patreon subscribers above $7/month can also join a subscribers-only book club hosted by me to dig deeper into these ideas.

5/23 – De-extinction and Jurassic Park, with Matt Haugen

Plus, an animal agency Zoom book club on 6/27 to discuss Richard Adams’ The Plague Dogs.

The automobile series this summer will discuss the social and environmental costs of car dependency, how sci-fi depicts cars and bikes, potential solutions to the crisis (both genuine and misguided), and the effects of roads upon wild ecosystems.
