Earth Calling's Sounds of Resilience Co-host

I'm an undergraduate student studying Film & Media, in addition to global sustainability. I am motivated to educate my community on the climate crisis and show the diversity of perspectives that contribute to activism, action, and knowledge. I strive to provide Earth Calling's platform to our community members, scholars, scientists, and activists to contribute to further action within the climate change movement.


Audrey Odwuor

Earth Calling Producer

I'm a PhD student studying California's wildfires and their interactions with climate and society. I'm especially passionate about helping the public stay informed about the climate crisis and ongoing research in the Earth sciences so I'm really excited to be part of the Earth Calling team! We're always hard at work exploring the topics you want to hear about to make them fun, interesting, and accessible.
