The Sweaty Penguin

Ethan Brown

Sometimes, climate change IS a laughing matter. Every week, The Sweaty Penguin cuts through the noise and the doom-and-gloom of the climate conversation with late-night-comedy-style monologues and in-depth conversations with leading global experts on a variety of environmental issues. Through a nonpartisan approach, The Sweaty Penguin makes environmental issues less overwhelming and politicized and more accessible and fun. In partnership with Peril and Promise, a PBS/WNET public media initiative on climate change, The Sweaty Penguin invites you to join the hottest conversation in town.

  • I enjoy The Sweaty Penguin. They present a number of environmental issues and discuss what can be done about these issues in very interesting interviews with experts. They avoid being politically divisive and keep on topic. The environment is not a left vs right issue and there are environmentalists on both sides. I enjoy these episodes and have learnt a lot.

  • This is even great for old guys like me

    Sweaty Penguin has not only provided me with great information on the environment, it also wins the war against my ADHD by being interesting, fun, and just the right length. I have learned quite a lot about topics which I had never really considered.

    In a world where every issue has been politicized, I was thrilled to come across a podcast about climate issues that informs and entertains from the middle.

  • The Perfect Cross of Comedy & Literally Everything Else

    The Sweaty Penguin will absolutely enchant you! It’s the kind of podcast that gets you *into* podcasts in general. It’s the perfect mix of comedy, information, and organization. So much of environmental media/literature unintentionally turns into overwhelming jargon-vortexes. The opening monologues of The Sweaty Penguin stand out by giving you a solid understanding of all the key parts, packaged neatly into a hilarious, witty narrative. It’s like taking a niche little knowledge pill while listen... more
