Talk Easy with Sam Fragoso

Nathaniel Rich

Nathaniel Rich is a writer-at-large for the New York Times Magazine whose latest piece, “Losing Earth: The Decade We Almost Stopped Climate Change”, is a landmark investigation into our current climate crisis. We discuss the 18 month process of writing this story, the moral obligation we have to preserve the world around us, what the planet may look like in 30-40 years, and how he believes we can combat the terrifying future ahead.
