About the Podcast
In the fall of 2019, SU first-year Nafisa Nazeer started SoundSustainability as a communication project for the Sustainability Ambassadors. After running the show solo for a semester, Nafisa invited fellow Ambassador Leah Horick to join the podcast, and together the co-hosts work to educate their community about sustainability issues on campus and beyond. Featuring interviews with students, faculty, staff, and community members; deep dives into the mainstream and esoteric sustainability debates; and the occasional plant pun; our show seeks to embody the complex and interconnected reality of sustainability issues and present sound solutions. No topic is off-limits when the fate of the planet is at stake!
