Climate Stew Heads to England for Greenbelt!

Peterson here, back from three weeks in Colorado. I hope you have been enjoying the Climate Stew podcast. This week we are looking at mothers and ask, “Why are they not talking about climate change?”

I am very pleased to announce that in late August I will pack up Marvin Bloom, Timothy Meadows, Tony Buffusio, Elizabeth Jeremiah, and whoever else may fit in my suitcase, and head to England for the annual Greenbelt Festival. This is a large three-day Christian arts festival held this year in Kettering, Northamptonshire.

I have performed at Greenbelt three times before (2006, 2008, and 2012) and each time I have new work to share. This year I will get to take my audiences with me into the worlds of climate comedy and climate justice. Fusing comedy, personal storytelling, and art, I have a feeling that this new work–looking at climate change as a human rights issue, a very queer issue, and a faith issue–will connect deeply with audiences.

Check out my contributor’s page over at the Greenbelt site, see some video from my last visit, and find out more about this festival–my all time favorite place to present my work.

The Climate Stew Apocalypse Tour Begins

I hope you have been enjoying the Climate Stew podcast with Timothy Meadows and That Day in Climate History and Marvin Bloom with his oddball take on climate deniers. The podcast is not what anyone might expect of a program that addresses global warming–it’s actually funny and we hope entertaining. And it is short–13 minutes or less.

If you like the podcast, than you might be ready for the live theater version in the new one-person comedy–Does This Apocalypse Make Me Look Fat? Marvin and Meadows both appear and I tell stories about myself and my family (mostly with their consent) to present a show that honestly looks at climate change and other crises small and large we have faced, but does so with comedy.

The show premieres on October 15 at Susquehanna University, and then I will take it on the road across North America with stops in Iowa, Minnesota, Portland, and more. Check out the tour schedule to see if I will be coming your way or near one of your friends.

Through the show, the podcast, and our blog here at Climate Stew, we want to contribute to an on-going conversation about environmental justice, human rights, and practical and creative approaches to global warming as we discover our roles on a new and changing planet.
