The Sweaty Penguin: Antarctica's Hottest Podcast
Each episode focuses on a specific environmental issue. Our host Ethan delivers a late-night-comedy-style monologue (sort of like John Oliver/Hasan Minhaj), which is a thoroughly-researched introduction to what the issue is, why it’s an issue, to what degree it’s an issue, and what steps (individually or politically) we can take to solve the issue. Then he interviews an expert to learn about their research and hear their perspective. The Sweaty Penguin has covered a wide range of topics from traffic to ADHD to vanilla to fast fashion and interviewed experts around the world. Our goal is to make environmental issues more fun and less politicized, so people of any political ideology or interest level can learn, engage, and find common ground.
