Superb environmental journalism from NPR!
One of the most important radio program's out there and probably one of the least appreciated! Given the state of the environment today and all the major issues surrounding it this show should be on everyone's radar. Give it a listen if you don't already and it *will* win you over. Wonderful stuff!
Best environmental podcast
The podcast is has varied, interesting topics and is excellently produced.
Things you never knew were connected...
L.O.E. is a gem. The reporting is top-notch, as you would expect from any NPR-aired program.. but L.O.E goes a step beyond.. providing detailed, thoughtful looks at varied enviromental issues and most especially on how they all connect together. Their series "Signs from a Warming Planet" is at the same time incrediby thought provoking, but also frightening. The truth about climate change is undeniable and after you hear a few episodes of L.O.E, you'll be motivated to make some changes in your everyday life.
