“As host of PBS's podcast The Sweaty Penguin, I make climate change less politicized/more fun, a new outlook your audience will want to hear!”


About Me

I was never the outdoorsy type growing up, so when I learned about climate change as a teenager, I was extremely concerned, but couldn’t get myself interested in the topic. I found it overwhelming, depressing, and extremely politically polarizing. After years of revisiting the topic and even completing a BA in Environmental Analysis & Policy, I started to find that by separating facts from politics and injecting some humor and hope, the environment could be nonpartisan and fun. In April 2020, I put that to the test by launching The Sweaty Penguin Podcast. Every week, The Sweaty Penguin cuts through the noise and the doom-and-gloom of the climate conversation with late-night-comedy-style monologues and in-depth conversations with leading global experts on a variety of environmental issues. Since its launch, The Sweaty Penguin has released 80+ episodes on topics ranging from fracking to ADHD to maple syrup to jellyfish, amassed over 12,000 downloads, showcased the work of professors from ten countries across five continents, won three grants, and became a PBS partner. You can find us on any major podcasting platform, on, or on our website at which has past guests, press coverage, and more information.
