Episode 6: Adam Spencer with Filmmakers for Conservation. Adam and Doug discuss how you can use visuals to tell your adaptation story. Adam has just started turning his environmental film making skills toward adaptation. We discuss using film, TV, and even graphic novel comics as mediums to discuss climate change adaptation. Will a conservation meme change the course of history? We also get into a spirited discussion on how conservation funding undervalues communication and what steps we might take to bring more creative approaches to science communication. As a bonus, Adam, an environmental film/documentary aficionado shares with us his all time favorite environmental films.
