The TILclimate (Today I Learned: Climate) podcast is back for its fifth season with bite-sized episodes answering climate change questions.
Hosted by Laur Hesse Fisher from the MIT Environmental Solutions Initiative, the show helps you get smart quickly on climate change science and solutions, directly from experts at MIT and beyond, without the jargon and without getting too being political.
The new series answers questions such as “What are the two biggest hurdles to getting all our energy from wind and solar – and how do we overcome them?” and “Why can’t we just get all our water from the ocean?” Curious why so many people are talking about methane? Or why states are building wind farms in the ocean, when building them on land is so much cheaper?
In each episode, Laur teams up with an expert to help listeners bump up their climate know-how in fifteen minutes or less.
Laur Hesse Fisher says: “We work hard to give people clear, satisfying answers to their burning questions about climate change.
“I like to say that TILclimate is the signal in the noise. We do our best to eliminate jargon and the political lean, so listeners can make up their own minds about the best way to address climate change.”
Season five of TILclimate launches weekly from today, Thursday 5 October on all major podcast platforms, including Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and Amazon Music.
