Steve Curwood
As the host of "Living on Earth", one of the most popular radio shows about the environment, Steve Curwood has covered everything from Earth Day to pollution to climate change. At Living Future, he will connect the dots between the urban landscape and social justice, honing in on the city as a locus of the natural world instead of a separate entity.
