EPR follows environmental professionals at all levels of their career to bring you a nuanced and informed discussion on what it’s like to work in the environmental arena. Hear us talk through failures, struggles and successes of the typical environmental professional. We will also highlight news, updates and fun facts from the scientific community.
We are excited to provide this podcast as a way to reach environmental professionals, students, and educators who have one thing in common: we spend our time working to protect the environment.
One of our favorite segments is Field Notes, where guests share their most memorable moments working in the field. Share yours on social media using the hashtag #Fieldnotes for a chance to have yours read on a future episode.
