In this episode, musician and artist Natalie Sharp travels deep into the heart of the Amazon rainforest to listen to the chorus of its inhabitants. She thinks about the effects the destruction of rainforests is having on the planet and asks if listening to the sounds of these unique ecosystems can change our perspective on the climate emergency. How could an interspecies alliance – an alliance between humans and non-human entities – combat the forces of destruction?

Sound artist David Monacchi and urbanist-architect Paulo Tavares discuss their experiences of documenting the destruction of rainforests in South America and the impact on both human and non-human inhabitants. Artist and writer Maria Tereza Alves reads from her book, Recipes for Survival which considers the effects of the timber industry on her hometown in Brazil. 

Recipes for Survival includes content listeners may find distressing.
