Generation Anthropocene
Agroecologist and Dean of Stanford University’s school of earth sciences Pam Matson discusses her agricultural research in the Yaqui Valley and how it relates to the Green Revolution. She also reflects upon the politics of sustainable agriculture and how we might go about feeding the 9 billion people we expect in the coming decades. As a final thought, she offers some advice to those who are coming of age in the Anthropocene, and why we shouldn’t waste our time trying to assign blame. Guest: Pam Matson. Interviewer: Samantha Larson. Producers: Michael Osborne, Miles Traer, and Leslie Chang.

Generation Anthropocene
As we hear over and over again, environmental issues are mounting, and the stakes are huge. So how might big data be used to tackle the issues of sustainability, climate change, habitat loss, and species extinction? And even more than that, can it offer us new ways of engaging in a relationship with nature? This episode comes from the Raw Data podcast, produced by our own Mike Osborne and Leslie Chang. Producers: Michael Osborne, Leslie Chang, Miles Traer.

Sounds of Stanford Collection - ARS.0154
Three part podcast focusing on the theme of things that are hidden in plain sight. The first part focuses on sustainability and reusing materials, specifically using SCRAP, a material reuse center in San Francisco, as a model. The second part explores the language gap between Stanford's janitorial staff and the students, and uses Habla, a program that pairs up janitorial staff with students to help the staff learn English, to explore this barrier. The third part explores sexual assault in Stanford's greek system, why sexual assault and fraternities are so associated, and what can we do to take steps to solve this problem

Generation Anthropocene
After growing up in a remote corner of Alaska, marine biologist Zach Brown wants to start a school to teach future scientists about environmental sciences and sustainability. Zach tells producers Mike and Leslie about his vision for the Inian Islands Institute (nicknamed “The Hobbit Hole”) and how experiential education is perhaps the best way to clearly see the lost connections between human systems and the natural world. Zach also remembers what it’s like growing up with only a single television channel, and how often the signal would drop out… with some interesting results. Guest: Zach Brown. Interviewers: Michael Osborne and Leslie Chang. Producers: Michael Osborne, Miles Traer, and Leslie Chang.

Generation Anthropocene
History is accelerating. As we move farther into the Anthropocene, we must ask ourselves what we want for the planet today and what will we preserve for the next generation. But how do we know where to place our conservation efforts in this new geologic age? About two months ago, the Generation Anthropocene team was invited to Santa Cruz, CA for a reunion for the Leopold Leadership Program. It’s a program that helps environmental researchers prepare to translate “knowledge to action” to lead change on the world’s most pressing sustainability challenges, and it’s full of really smart people. In this episode, we revisit the history of conservationism and bring you excerpts from our interviews with a half dozen experts, covering everything from frogs to invasive species to shades of green to a funny-looking Mexican salamander (that apparently doesn’t taste half bad). The debate over why to save nature goes back over a hundred years, but it has never been more relevant than it is now in the Anthropocene – where we’re calling the shots. Guests: Andy Hoffman, Karen Lips, Dov Sax, Chris Field, Luis Zambrano, and Susi Moser. Interviewers: Michael Osborne, Miles Traer, and Leslie Chang. Producers: Michael Osborne, Miles Traer, and Leslie Chang.
