Rising Tide Podcast

 

Welcome to the Rising Tide podcast, hosted by Blue Frontier’s Executive Director, David Helvarg and Inland Ocean Coalition's Executive Director, Vicki Nichols Goldstein. You will meet today’s ocean champions, including senators, scientists, surfers, and youth activists. We will cover a range of issues, including climate change, overfishing, and plastic pollution. This podcast aims to give you information, inspiration, and motivation (along with a few laughs) to help understand our ocean world and make it better. The ocean is rising, so are we!
