Behind the Schemes

This podcast only releases a few episodes a year, but host Rhishja Cota-Larson of the nonprofit Annamiticus always does a great job covering issues related to wildlife trafficking. The most recent entry, released this past February, covered South Africa’s rhino poaching epidemic. Last year’s two episodes on Asian and African pangolins are also must-listens.

Are you "bugged" by the thought of world food shortages? Daniella Martin, host of the "Girl Meets Bug" cooking show has some answers.

Her list of edible insects might first disturb you, but don't knock it if you haven't tried it. Entomphagy (insect eating) is sustainable, healthy, and far less fattening than a steak. And your next barbeque could become a sensation.

This one comes to you from NPR affiliate KUOW and environmental journalist Ashley Ahearn, who’s tackling some tough topics. The first three episodes to date have covered eco-friendly burial, the fear of environmental doom, and whether or not people want to have kids in a world of climate change. Good stuff.

 
Threshold

This podcast used its just-finished first season to tell a long-form story about the American bison. Each episode tacked a different piece of the story, ultimately presenting a full picture of the history and future of the bison. Fascinating. Plan to listen to the whole thing on a nice four-hour hike.
