In this ClimateGenn episode, I am speaking with author Tom Rosenstiel about his new political thriller, The Days To Come.
Tom has switched hats from journalist to fiction writer, possessing a depth of insight into how both disciplines interact with the public and our experience of reality.
The Days To Come is a thriller with a climate change theme that touches on many of the complex factors that can either accelerate or undermine our progress in tackling the climate crisis.
In this interview, we discuss how the book intersects with contemporary reality and also how fiction and journalism contribute to shaping the narrative we internalise, that helps us envision the future.
In the next episode, I am speaking with indigenous Sámi scholar Dr Tero Mustonen, who is based in Finnish Arctic, about the climate changes that threaten his communities existence and by extension, our own.
We will also discuss what we can do to try and reverse the extreme nature of change in these critical and vulnerable regions of the world.
