Nina Munteanu launches Age of Water podcast

Age of Water, the new podcast produced by SF Canada member Nina Munteanu and writer/technologist Claudiu Murgan interviews scientists, journalists, writers, academia and innovators who share their knowledge and opinions about the real state of the environment and what committed individuals and groups are doing to make a difference. They talk about the problems and they talk about the solutions.

We are now living in the Age of Water. Water is the new “gold”, with individuals, corporations and countries positioning themselves around this precious resource. Many already struggle with scarcity and pollution. All too soon, water—its quality, its possession, its distribution—will define a person’s security, comfort, wealth, and even identity. Water is changing everything.

The format of the podcast is a combination of chat cast and informal interview, covering everything from breaking environmental news to evergreen material. This includes human interest stories, readings of eco-literature, discussion of film and other media productions of interest.

Recent interviewees include SF Canada member Candas Jane Dorsey who talks about her award-winning stories, teaching at university, what eco-fiction means, and how writers can be “sneaky.” Listen to it here.

Nina Munteanu is a Canadian ecologist/limnologist and internationally published author of award-winning speculative novels, short stories and non-fiction. She is co-editor of Europa SF and currently teaches writing courses at George Brown College and the University of Toronto.
