The Climate Pod

Mar 3, 2021

This week, three of the authors behind Dirty Gold: The Rise And Fall Of An International Smuggling Ring join the show to talk about the tragic human and environmental loss stemming from illegal gold mining and the illegal international trade that fuels the issue. Authors Jay Weaver, Jim Wyss, and Nicholas Nehamas explain how the true crime story at the center of their reporting unfolded, how this became such a big issue, and why it matters to the climate movement. 

Co-hosts Ty Benefiel and Brock Benefiel also reflect on completing 100 episodes of the show.
