The Earth Sea Love podcast series

This podcast series is part of Northumberland National Parks Future Landscapes Festival which hopes to inspire everyone to think about why nature is important to them and what our iconic National Park landscapes may look like in the future.

The Earth Sea Love Podcast was created during lockdown in 2020 as a means of changing the narrative around who has a right to have a connection with nature. It’s a podcast for and about women of colour and their relationship with nature, and is committed to exploring the experiences of women of colour with Mother Nature, hosted by Dr. Sheree Mack. The Earth Sea Love podcast provides spaces where the hidden voices in the environmental and conservation conversations can explore their relationship with the natural world.

Inspired by time spent outdoors, the podcast amplifies the voices of women of colour; their stories, conversations, interviews, photography, writing and artwork. It explores their legacies, histories and memories which have had an influence and effect upon how women of colour perceive themselves within the natural world and environmental / climate justice movements.

This podcast is funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, and is part of a bigger project working to provide opportunities in nature for people of colour in the North East of England. Due to be released every Friday in November and one episode in December 2021, each episode features a special guest talking with the podcast host, Dr. Sheree Mack, and when live can be found via https://earthsealove.com:
