Earthwise

Earthwise Every Earthwise programme features a discussion on conservation, environment or peace with justice. The interview might be with a local Cantabrian, with someone in a different part of the country, or a distinguished person from overseas. Broadcast on the first and third Monday evening at 9pm repeated the following Wednesday at 9:30am. The choice of topics varies considerably. Earthwise hopes that people who are especially interested in conservation will also find peace with justice issues interesting and vice versa. Every programme is promoted on several email lists depending on the feature topic.If you miss them on-air, check out their podcasts.
