As a podcaster and radio producer, I listen to many climate change podcasts. Every now and then though, I hear a well-designed podcast that hits me in the heart and the gut. It becomes a transformative audio experience.
This is exactly what happened when I first listened to Claude Schryer’s conscient podcast. As a sound designer, Claude is able to reach deep into listeners’ minds and even bodies. Sound has that power. I chatted with Claude about his podcast and his own journey as an artist addressing climate change. From that recorded conversation, Claude wove in sound effects and personal reflection.
We encourage you to listen with headphones on.
The conscient podcast / balado conscient is a bilingual series of conversations about arts, conscience, and the ecological crisis. You will find it wherever you listen to podcasts.
Next month, I will feature Dr. Krista Hiser and The Ultimate Cli-Fi Bookclub.
