WHAT: iHeartPodcasts and Imagine Audio debut "Unf*cking the Future," which is not your average science podcast. It's a rollercoaster ride of hope and hard facts. Hosted by the ever-engaging and slightly irreverent climate scientist Chris Turney, each episode is a journey from despair to repair. We start with the alarming truths about our planet's health (and trust us, some facts are so wild they're almost funny). Then, we pivot to the bright side – the innovative, sometimes bizarre, but always brilliant solutions that give us a fighting chance at a brighter and greener future. 

Expect interviews with experts and activists such as Bill Nye, Adam Mckay, Maggie Baird and Dr. Lise Van Susteren, as well as Chris’ own tales from the front lines of climate research. It’s the podcast that makes saving the world feel like it’s achievable. So join us in “Unf*cking the Future!”
