How Rewilding Changes Us, and What’s With the New Orca Behaviours 

Join Ben Goldsmith and Níels Einarsson in conversation with Jules Pretty on how rewilding changes whole landscapes as well as our imagination, and how the 500 Orca marine incidents off Iberia are challenging how we think of wild marine mammals. What is rewilding, how can it benefit landscapes and cities, what are the best ways to think about human-nature relationships?

Ben Goldsmith is author of “God is an Octopus”, rewilding farmer and advocate, and Chief Executive of Menhaden Plc. Níels Einarsson is Director of the Stefansson Arctic Institute at the University of Akureyri, northern Iceland. It is the 25th anniversary year of the Stefansson Arctic Institute.

The Louder Than Words Podcast

The Louder Than Words podcast is about how ideas improve lives. Professor Jules Pretty created the Louder than Words podcast for conversations on how the world can be made a better place by inquiry, research and public engagement. These are ideas that can inspire individual, collective and policy action.

This is the first podcast from the Centre for Public and Policy Engagement at the University of Essex. There are three series a year: autumn, spring and summer.

Each episode of Louder Than Words takes a key contemporary issue and gives you a chance to hear from leading researchers, policy makers, thinkers and campaigners plus those directly affected by the issue.

The podcast is produced by Marcus Pierpoint and Luke Fitch of the University of Essex’s Media Centre. Producer of series one and two was Martha Dixon, series three was produced by Alli Walker.
