The Inherited podcast features stories from the International Youth Climate Movement (IYCM). It comes from a generation that faces a choice. They can accept the climate disaster they've inherited or revolt against it. The IYCM chose the latter. The show delivers reports from 20 countries. Young voices share how climate change affects their lives and how they fight it.
Creators Georgia Wright and Jules Bradley cohost Inherited. Wright and Bradley started the podcast as undergraduates at Brown University. After garnering funds, the two New Englanders looked to diversify this global problem. They understood the racial injustice central to the climate battle. Soon the podcast employed nine and grew into a network of storytellers from 20 countries. They deliver relevant interviews, analyses, and reports.
One episode follows a young woman visiting her grandparents' sugarcane farm in India. Her coverage of drought and how it affects the family is enlightening. Another podcast episode explores the IYCM's grassroots efforts toward awareness and policy change. It follows the young activists to protests at government offices. It explores youth actions that awaken the world to climate issues. A 15-year-old girl tells the story of how her beach community was devastated by Hurricane Sandy in 2012 and how it still impacts her.
An episode entitled "Green New Dream" asks, "What if we choose hope in the face of despair?" The hosts explore the "collective dreams of a better tomorrow." The podcast explores what happens when kids stand up to oil companies. Inherited reports on the successes of the movement. New episodes come out several times a week.
