Adaptors are all around us: from the farmers and coastal-dwellers finding new ways to work and live, to the scientists thinking outside the box about energy, to corporate leaders bringing new technologies to market, to the garage tinkerers and DIY inventors dreaming up the next big thing in green living. We want to introduce you to them, one story at a time.
Digital Goodies for Stations
Here’s some content that stations can use on their websites or social media feeds to promote the show and generate some digital buzz.
Inventor Louis Michaud appears in The Adaptors’ Earth Day special. Katherine Wells and Flora Lichtman of The Adaptors team also created this video profile of Michaud. We were thrilled and honored that it’s been named a “staff pick” at Vimeo.
Driving on Air
Another video profile from Flora Lichtman and Katherine Wells of The Adaptors. Raul Oaida launched a startup as a teenager in Romania. Now he’s 20 and still dreaming and still inventing.
Cyclone in a Box
Here’s the stand-alone audio version of The Adaptors’ profile of inventor Louis Michaud. You can embed this audio on your site or share it on social media to give your audience a taste of what they’ll hear during The Adaptors Earth Day special.
Cat Eyes for Climate Change
Here’s another audio segment from the Earth Day special in a stand-alone format. Bioethicist Matthew Liao has some provocative ideas about steps we could take to reduce our environmental impact.
Climate Confessions Audio
We’re collecting Climate Confessions. Here’s our pitch:
Are you worried that you’re not doing enough to address climate change? Feeling bad about a choice you made? Is there something you should be doing, or stop doing? You’re not alone! Get those isolating feelings off your chest. Call the Climate Confessions hotline: 844-U-FESS-UP.
You can embed these audio files on your website or put them on Facebook or Twitter to spur conversation.
We have tweets and Facebook posts that are ready to go. Here are two pages of them to choose from.
We’ve also created a bunch of “quote images” that are all set for Twitter and Facebook — they’re sized for sharing on your Twitter feed and Facebook account, respectively. Download them and share away.

Make your own Climate Confession images
Here are two editable templates that allow you to create Climate Confessions images for your Twitter or Facebook account. You’ll have to sign up / log in to Canva.com, but it’s super easy and you can just replace our placeholder text with climate confessions from your host or audience. (Ask them to include the #ClimateConfessions hashtag!)
After you’ve added your own confession to the template, just click “Download” or “Share” and you’re done.
This link should take you to a Twitter-shaped (rectangular) Climate Confessions template.
And this one should take you to a Facebook-y square template.
