LBE Podcast – A six-episode podcast series sharing stories of Solastalgia from land-dependent and indigenous communities affected by environmental change.
Each episode of storytelling is paired with another side of the same story – a B-side where the landscape, then, speaks for itself. Sounds captured in the environment are turned into sound art, and musical expressions unearth from the land.
Communities featured are based in the Arctic, Kenya, Thailand, Uganda and India, and each episode will be available in English as well as in its respective local language.
Land Body Ecologies Podcast is created and produced by Invisible Flock.
