The Sixth Festival is a brand new climate change festival gathering, illuminating, and activating people around the greatest issue we have ever faced. A fringe festival with events and participants of all kinds: dancing, panels...we spotlight and uplift what people already do so that everyone can see how they can get involved, wherever and whoever they are.
The podcast is two series: "Walk the Walk," a thru-hikers' podcast; and "In the Field" about people who study and work in any capacity relating to climate--finance, migration, wildlife, and more. We also post the audio of past events.
In the first episode of In the Field, a show with people who study and work in the thousand parts there are to the climate crisis, we sit down with Alyssa Johnson, wildlife biology honors major at Purdue University.
I have to say thank you to Alyssa for how vulnerable she got and for taking us on a very personal journey, from her struggles with health to the coyotes who used to echo her music and the other co-inhabiters of the earth she has committed her life to. Truly an inspiration.
**We apologize for the poor quality and volume. We are a brand new festival without experience, tools, or funding...and I just didn't get the mic close enough.**

Sit down with people who have walked the country's longest trails, spending months outside at a time, living on minimal resources and streams away from society, being nearer the earth, and themselves.
