Shades of Green

Shades of Green

Shades of Green is Austin's only live, environmental talk radio show. Each week, Producer John Hoffner, along with Co-hosts Reed Sternberg and Amy Stansbury (Editor-In-Chief of The Austin Common) inform and inspire listeners on current topics locally and nationally related to green energy and the environment.

Nature In The City

Nature In The City

Produced in partnership with the City of Austin Development Services Department, the Nature In The City podcast follows along with Dr. Kevin Anderson (a geographer and philosopher managing the Environmental Research Center for the City of Austin) as he shares his knowledge about the world around us. In 2019, the topic was “The Geography of Flowing Water: Rivers, Streams, Nature, and Culture.”
