Your survival guide for a changing planet

Climate change is scary. Life Raft is not.

In a podcast from WWNO, WRKF and PRX, reporter Travis Lux and comedian Lauren Malara answer your questions about living with climate change. How bad will the flooding get? Should I raise my house on stilts? Will New Orleans even be viable as a city? We’ll tackle it all.

Got a question for us? We’re listening.

Tell Us What You Think About Life Raft (And Win $50) Life Raft

What did you think about the first season of Life Raft? We want to know how to tweak the show to better serve you because you are who we make this show for.  Here’s how you can help us: fill out this super short online survey. It takes less than five minutes and will go a long way toward helping us improve the show in the future.  As an incentive: if you complete the survey by March 29, 2021, you’ll be entered into a raffle to win a $50 gift card (two winners will be chosen at random). Free money, y’all! That’s how much we want to know what you think. — Support for WWNO’s Coastal Desk comes from the Greater New Orleans Foundation, the Walton Family Foundation, and listeners like you.  If you liked what you heard from Life Raft this season, consider making a donation to WRKF and WWNO to help keep the show going.

We’re going to get a glimpse into the world of prepping through the eyes of Sharon Ross, who wanted to be prepared for anything, but later found herself the odd one out.

Episode 1: ‘Is it ever gonna be too hot to live here?’

Hosts Lauren and Travis talk to a doctor about what happens to the human body when it starts to overheat, and to a New Orleans resident on a mission to cool off her neighborhood by planting hundreds of trees.
