The Climate Pod

Oct 30, 2021

We're mixing it up for this episode to celebrate our favorite spooky holiday with an exceptional guest that gives us the very real climate-related inspiration behind Mary Shelley's classic Frankenstein. Dr. Michael Wysession, Professor of Earth and Planetary Sciences at Washington University in St. Louis, talks about his 2018 essay "Frankenstein Meets Climate Change: Monsters of Our Own Making" and explains how not only was the story influenced by a brief period of extreme climate change, but it also provides many parallels to the climate crisis we’re facing today.
