Amy Martin is an audio producer, writer and musician. She's currently developing a podcast about youth and nature in America called Learning Their Place, which documents how the next generation is responding to massive environmental change. Her hope is that listening to their voices will help wake us up to the urgency of our situation and inspire us to take positive action.
