Amy Westervelt and the Art, Science and Drama of Climate Podcasting

In episode 125 of America Adapts, Doug Parsons hosts Amy Westervelt, host of the Drilled podcast and founder of the Critical Frequency podcast network. Doug and Amy discuss media coverage of climate change and how climate podcasts are becoming more popular. We go behind the scenes of her podcast Drilled and learn how fossil fuel companies created the modern public relations industry. We also discuss her essay contribution in the new book, “All We Can Save” and the controversies of having children in the age of climate change. And we also cover how the media is doing connecting recent wildfires with climate change. It’s a full episode with a legend in the climate podcast space!

Topics covered:

  • How Amy got her start in climate journalism and what inspired her to start the podcast Drilled.
  • How Amy constructs a Drilled episode.
  • We discuss the boom in climate podcasts and the challenges of launching a podcast.
  • Learn how the fossil fuel industry created the modern public relations sector.
  • Should we ‘humanize’ the climate to get the public to care more like corporations have done for themselves?
  • Can the climate movement ever learn how to ‘play hardball’?
  • Should the climate movement worry about its ‘identity.’
  • Amy’s essay contribution in the new climate book “All We Can Save.”
  • Discussing the discussion around having kids and climate change.
  • Amy talks about her other podcast “Hot Take” with Mary Annaïse Heglar
  • Did the media do a good job connecting the recent wildfires in California and Australia with climate change?
