Earth Day Radio Special

This hour-long radio edition of The Adaptors is being broadcast this spring on hundreds of public radio stations from one coast to another and in between. Flora Lichtman and Alex Chadwick introduce us to people with outside-the-box solutions for addressing climate change.

Plus, a philosopher’s radical idea of engineering the human body to adapt to a changing climate.
