EcoTalk is an environmental and climate justice podcast co-produced by Communities of Hope and EcoRI News. Hosted by Jack Aviles and Sam Elwell, EcoTalk is a discussion of Southern New England’s economy, ecology, and ecosystems. Each episode covers a different topic relating to environmental justice, sustainability, biology, and more.

Only now is environmental justice being taken seriously enough at least to have bills written that define it, governmental reports that mention it, and policy enacted to address it. But moving the term further from paper to practice will take an even greater struggle.
