ANU environmental podcast
Australian National University are podcasting a series of lectures and seminars on the environment, and are covering some hard hitting topics, ranging from policy and economy to oceanography (several of which I might not entirely agree with) . Below are three of the best – see the full listing here.
- Ecology, Conservation, and Public Policy: A Vision for the 21st Century (Professor Marc Mangel, University of California, Santa Cruz: 56mins)
- The Evolution of Economic Policy on Climate Change (Professor Richard Carson, University of California: 1hr 38mins)
- The Dirty Politics of Climate Change (Clive Hamilton, Australia Institute: 1hr 7mins)

The Stanford microdocs website has a full listing of all microdocs, and below are some of the highlights:
