To date, The Sweaty Penguin has released over 100 episodes and interviewed world-renowned climate experts from eleven countries and five continents. The Sweaty Penguin’s innovative work to make environmental issues less overwhelming, less politicized, and more fun has led to a PBS partnership, a selection as an Official Honoree at the 2022 Webby Awards, and dozens of podcast interviews and news stories.

Humor is just one tool in the toolbox for making climate change more digestible. The Sweaty Penguin also leans heavily on critical thinking and nuance to examine all angles of each issue, discuss the pros and cons of every possible solution, and take climate change seriously while also acknowledging humans are not going extinct tomorrow. Ethan always stays on top of the weekly climate news cycle, critically analyzing every major climate story to better inform and engage the public, on The Sweaty Penguin and as a guest on many other podcasts.
