SFYN podcast series: Exploring Ecosystems

Within the framework of Terra Madre 2020, we decided to develop a SFYN Podcast series dedicated to different ecosystems. Each ecosystem was paired with a specific sub-thematic that was particularly relevant for it. For example, how can arid lands be an example for regenerative practices or how can gastronomy be a tool to preserve biodiversity in urban lands?  

This podcast series is also particularly interesting from the sound point of view: one of our goals was to make sure the listeners would immerse themselves into those different ecosystems and varied cultures. Therefore the voices of the speakers are alternated by natural sounds and traditional music.

“Terra Madre Podcast is a journey through ecosystems linked to cultures, traditions, issues, identities and from my perspective, diverse music.” Leonardo Prieto Dorantes, music producer and editor of the podcast series.
