PRI: Living on Earth

Reviews For PRI: Living on Earth

Living on earth is a great update on the state of the environment and is easy to listen to.
Wide ranging and in depth coverage of domestic and international environmental issues.
This show is for more than just environmentalists, it's educational and thoughtful. Every episode is worth the listen.
I have tried to listen to this multiple times, and each time it has been a nauseating experience. The corporate bias is so transparent that it is hard to understand how they even pretend to care about the environment (except insofar as environmentalism is nothing more than a chance for 'green entrepreneurs' to cash in on what ought to be a revolutionary social idea).
Important stories, well reported.
Makes environmental news understandable, engaging, and relevant. Well done program.
Love this podcast.
This is one of those podcasts I'm so happy to have discovered part of me is frustrated I didn't find it sooner. So smart, so interesting, great writing. Thoughtful, lovely articles filled with sounds. They're not afraid to be beautiful or true. The May 10 episode is one of my favorites. The last story about the permaculture urban farm in Holyoke is, without question, the most inspiring story I've heard in a mighty long time. Even if you don't listen to any other episodes, if you're interested enough in Living on Earth to read reviews the you owe it to yourself to listen the one on May 10.
For some reason, downloading Living on Earth takes a lot longer than any other NPR podcast. Don't know what gives. I think its a great show, btw.
LOE use to be one of my most favorite shows, but lately I have noticed more and more cheer leading for corporate interests and guests representing those interests go unchalleneged. This is a great disappointment and a great disservice to LOE listeners and the general public. I listen to LOE to get the news I can't find elsewhere and to hear the corporate powers challenged in ways the mainstream media never will - not to get the same canned, bullet point answers I can get on the nightly news. LOW needs to get back to its roots and speak truth to power. It is still worth a listen since though. You'll just need to be as skeptical as you are when you are listening to big corporate station.
Living On Earth is a rare show in that it can tackle the most daunting and depressing environmental stories week after week, yet still leave you feeling like you've 'enjoyed' the experience. This is news with a heart. No doubt you'll find yourself both smiling and crying (somehow), and becoming well informed in the process, as I have.
Absolutely fantastic. I just discovered it and love the confluence of environmental sustainability, social stability and economic security in each podcast. A must listen!
This isn't just the best environmental program out there, it's one of the best shows of any kind. Informative and simply a pleasure to listen to.
I listen to everyone of these. They are not only expertly done but always informative.
...In radio broadcasts about the environment. Where is a sixth star when you need it? I've listened to a couple podcasts about the environment, but I haven't looked for other sources for green news for at least 2 years. Steve, Bruce, and all the gang are simply that good.
I love this podcast for up-to-date environmental news!
L.O.E. is a gem. The reporting is top-notch, as you would expect from any NPR-aired program.. but L.O.E goes a step beyond.. providing detailed, thoughtful looks at varied enviromental issues and most especially on how they all connect together. Their series "Signs from a Warming Planet" is at the same time incrediby thought provoking, but also frightening. The truth about climate change is undeniable and after you hear a few episodes of L.O.E, you'll be motivated to make some changes in your everyday life.
The podcast is has varied, interesting topics and is excellently produced.
One of the most important radio program's out there and probably one of the least appreciated! Given the state of the environment today and all the major issues surrounding it this show should be on everyone's radar. Give it a listen if you don't already and it *will* win you over. Wonderful stuff!
