Speaking for the Trees is about environmental issues from two environmental engineers’ perspectives, in laymen’s terms. If you always wanted to learn more about environmental issues and don’t know where to start, why not give us a listen (or read)?Ellie and Lauren both worked in environmental consulting after their grad program in environmental engineering. They were looking for ways to continue their education in environmental justice topics they care about when they realized: hey wait a sec. We both like explaining things, we both want to take on a creative project and keep up on environmental topics, and we like to hang out. Thus, Speaking for the Trees was born! The podcast (and its accompanying transcripts) takes seriously the full weight of the important environmental issues that face humanity while also being fun, and (hopefully) instill some hope in the listener. There are swears.
