Yale University’s Climate Connections aired my interview on 400 radio stations across the US, and posted a link to the video for “Halfway to Jesus” at their website. These folks are doing great work for all of us – interviews, lectures, articles, photographs, anything of interest to help people understand what is happening to our planet –
The link will take you to my interview where the audio that was broadcast is playable at the top and down a ways they’ve posted a link to the video. I am so honored to be a small art of their work.
