Songs of the Ocean

We are all ocean people. No matter where on Earth we live, the ocean touches every aspect of our lives, from the air we breathe and the climate we experience to the food we eat and the goods we consume. What we do in our daily lives affects the oceans of the world. So there is simply no way to fully understand and appreciate our place on this planet without a deep knowledge of the ocean and our relationship with it. Some aspects of this relationship have shaped the consciousness of coastal peoples for millennia, and it is through this series of podcasts that we explore these themes.
