Welcome back lovely listeners! We are so thrilled to launch SEASON 2 of The Lodge Cast. Eva and Sophie bring you six shiny new episodes and fabulous guests, with topics ranging from nature prescriptions, beavers and plants, beavers and river health, environmental policy and so much more! 

To kick us off, we have the fantastic Gillian Burke talking to us about diversity in conservation, and the importance of restoring nature in a just way - and why we must have these conversations. Gillian is a highly respected broadcaster, writer, activist and journalist, best known for presenting BBC Springwatch. 

Eva and Sophie dig deep for some bizarre facts, and Sophie puts Eva's knowledge to the test in the weirdest quiz yet...enjoy!

Why is the youth voice so important in the fight against climate change? And did Greta Thunberg have any idea of the #ClimateStrike movement she would inspire around the world?

Celtic Reptile and Amphibian aims to restore Britain's relict populations of these incredible species - and these young men are already inspiring thousands with their passion, drive and knowledge.

‘Eco Anxiety’: what it means, and what to do about it - with Dr Catriona Mellor

‘Eco Anxiety’: what it means, and what to do about it - with Dr Catriona Mellor

March 8, 2021

We hear a lot about 'eco anxiety' - but what does it mean? 

Our health is intrinsically linked to the health of the planet. But how do we manage those feelings when it all gets a bit overwhelming? Sophie and Eva chat to Dr Catriona Mellor, a Child and Adolescent psychiatrist, who specialises in understanding how the climate and ecological crisis can affect our mental health at any age. Dr Mellor seeks to offer training and insight for other medical clinicians, to develop practical 'toolkits' to manage human fear and distress for the health of the planet. 

In a truly fascinating and moving discussion, this episode hopes to offer a solution-based approach to a sensitive, and very real issue. 

Coming up: will Sophie regain her lead in the #FactOff, and put Eva's knowledge to the test in a quiz?
