On this episode of All About Nashville listen to a conversation with author, journalist, professor and agent for change Amanda Little. We discuss her new book "Fate of Food, What We’ll Eat in a Bigger, Hotter, Smarter World", her latest initiative "Kidizenship", her recent interview with John Kerry the day he was sworn into the newly formed position of Special Presidential Envoy for Climate, & her journey over the years towards inspiring a healthier, more livable community as our climate changes.
Amanda is a journalist writing about the environment and innovation. She is a professor of investigative journalism and science writing at Vanderbilt University, and has a particular fondness for far-flung and hard-to-stomach reporting that takes her to ultra-deep oil rigs, down manholes, into sewage plants, and inside monsoon clouds.
Amanda is also a contributing opinion writer for Bloomberg and has published her reporting and commentary in the New York Times Magazine, Vanity Fair, Rolling Stone, Wired, New York Magazine, The Washington Post, NewYorker.com and elsewhere. A former columnist for Outside magazine and Grist, she is a recipient of the Nautilus Book Award, the Rachel Carson Environment Book Award from the Society for Environmental Journalists (2nd place), and the Jane Bagley Lehman Award for excellence in environmental journalism.
