We have teamed up with independent producers to launch No Ordinary Lawsuit, a podcast that will bring you behind the scenes of the Juliana v. United States lawsuit, and we have officially released our first episode! Listen now on iTunes and other popular podcast apps. The podcast has already received over 100 five-star reviews on iTunes and has seen steady audience growth since the teaser trailer was released in mid-October.
Host Ambar Espinoza, former reporter at Rhode Island Public Radio, has spent years specializing in environment coverage and has been recognized for her hard-hitting features and investigations. The rest of the podcast team is rounded out with experienced storytellers, Our Children’s Trust communications staff members, and a composer producing original music for the series.
The series will follow the 21 youth plaintiffs suing the United States government for violating their constitutional rights to life, liberty, and property by knowingly contributing to climate change. The team will release several core episodes leading up to and throughout trial, whenever it begins. The podcast will be one of the main ways that you can stay connected to the #TrialoftheCentury, as it will feature timely and relevant updates on the progress of the legal proceedings.
We hope you enjoy. Please share with your friends and give us a rating!
