A pair of podcasts on poetry and the environment

Sunday, April 7th, 2019

Interviews with Alice are featured in two recent podcasts:

EarthTalk’s Poetry and Planet is a monthly series produced by Washington DC environmental journalist Ethan Goffman on the EarthTalk website. Terra Informa is a weekly series produced at the CJSR studio on the University of Alberta campus and broadcast in communities across Canada.

In both interviews, Alice talks about her latest collection, Welcome to the Anthropoceneand how it feels to realize that during her own lifetime, the planet’s population has ballooned from 2.5 billion (after taking all of human history to get there) to 7.5. billion (over one not-so-long human lifetime).
