A podcast about our warming planet from some of the nation’s best-known climate commentators? To quote the God of Mischief (patron deity of both Grist and teen girls): “Well, I guess that’s worth a look.” Or in this case, a listen.

In the first episode of “Warm Regards,” meteorologist and Slate writer Eric Holthaus, paleoecologist Jacquelyn Gill, and New York Times columnist Andy Revkin talk about one of our favorite subjects here at Grist: how to talk about climate change.

Holthaus starts out with the confession that he’s terrified by global warming, and his co-hosts chime in on how they, too, came to fear the carbon-pocalypse. But how do you discuss the problem in a way that inspires action instead of terror? Take a listen to find out.
