In This Climate

Feb 3, 2020

For thousands of generations, people have connected with their environments through music. They've developed ecological empathy, communicated with the divine, and passed their understandings through space and time.

Today, from Frank Waln's "Oil 4 Blood" to Billie Eilish's climate-tinged "All the Good Girls Go to Hell," popular artists continue to weave environmental activism into their art. Simultaneously, local artists foster space where people can engage collectively in the tradition of environmental music. In this episode, we continue to explore what all of that means, from Northern Indiana to rural Haiti.
