Nature's Past interview

I made an appearance on the latest episode of Nature's Past, the Canadian environmental history podcast. Show host Sean Kheraj and I go in-depth about The First Green Wave as well as more recent issues concerning the environmental movement. You can listen to the episode here.

Thanks go out to Sean for having me on his podcast. I'm a longtime listener so it was fun to make an appearance to discuss my new book.


Green Majority Radio

I made an appearance this morning on Green Majority Radio, an eco-themed program broadcasting out of CIUT in Toronto. We talk about my book and the lessons that can be drawn from the history of environmental activism. You can listen to the program here. (I'm on the very first segment of the show.) 

Thanks to Daryn Caister for having me on the show.

On the Road - London

Yesterday I had the opportunity to speak at the London Public Library. I spent a few years living in London while working on my PhD but haven't been back for a few years, so it was nice to see some familiar faces in the audience. (Shout out  to Alan, Bill, Brandon, and Dorotea from the History Department.) Thanks to all who came out!

I'm off to the Markham Public Library today at 7:30 pm. If you're in the area, come on out and say hi. More info can be found here.
