Podcasts that Connect your Spirit with the Environment

I have recently discovered the Faith in Place podcast: Voices of the Earth. Even though I am not connected locally to this Illinois-based group, I find the topics to be timely and relevant. Faith in Place started this "podcast where we explore the intersection of spirituality, the environment, and justice." Their guests offer personal narratives that support each episode looking at environmental justice, discussing their religious backgrounds and evolutions of self, and how legislative and societal changes improve our communities. You can find more information on the podcast on the Faith in place website.

What podcasts do you listen to within the spirituality and EE realm? I am sure there are podcasts out there that connect you to your journey.

We look for forward to expanding our repertoires.

I currently don't listen to any podcasts explicitly within the spirituality and EE realm, but below are a couple that came to mind:
- Emergence (https://emergencemagazine.org/podcast/): Features exclusive interviews, author-narrated essays, contributor conversations, fiction, multipart series, and more from "Emergence." The online magazine describes itself with the following: "As we experience the desecration of our lands and waters, the extinguishing of species, and a loss of sacred connection to the earth, we look to emerging stories. In them we find the timeless connections between ecology, culture, and spirituality."
- On Being (https://onbeing.org/series/podcast/): I've heard specific episodes and content (including poems in this group) recommended from this podcast. I listened to the one on Asset Framing with Trabian Shorters and got a lot out of it!

I just listened to this episode of the Earthkeepers podcast (a Christian creation care-focused podcast) where Alex Bailey, the founder of Black Outside, Inc., was interviewed. He has a background in environmental education, and I really appreciated how he explained how his faith/spirituality informs his work, which I think could be helpful for people of any spiritual background.
