Earth Unscrewed

About this podcast

In this podcast powered by Virgin, Earth Unscrewed looks at some of the incredible, and often surprising, developments that are providing some serious hope for the future of our planet. Humans have been screwing up the Earth, and this podcast is looking into the incredible work that's being done to help ‘un-screw’ it. Presenters Dr. Helen Scales and Seyi Rhodes meet the innovators striving to make a change; from the man mining fatbergs for clean fuel, to the woman in Kenya bringing electric power to her village, to the team finding a surprising use for waste chicken feathers!
