  • Earth Matters (view podcasts)

    Climate change, ferocious weather and ‘the haze’ are now part our everyday lives. How are our lifestyles connected to them, and what can we do about it? What does the economy have to do with it? Earth Matters engages with activists and experts to explore our changing relationship with the planet that we only borrow from our children.

  • Today I Learned (view podcasts)

    The world is in debt, but who are we in debt to? Pro-wrestling is fake, so why do we love it? These are the kinds of discussions we have on Today I Learned -- a weekly show exploring a plethora of topics, to satisfy your curious mind!


Past Shows

  • Feminist Fridays (view podcasts)

    Every Friday, we celebrate unapologetic women who are shaping a future that guarantees gender equality, as they deal with everyday sexism. Our conversations are a mix of perspectives that intersect with pop culture, identity politics, economics and more.

  • Too Long;Should Read (view podcasts)

    The Internet generation is constantly accused of collective ADHD and a correspondingly brief attention span. TL;SR challenges that notion by picking a long (or long-ish!) piece from the buffet of the world wide web and examining its themes and providing context, with weekly guests.
