Into the Gold Mines
Larry Price has been wanting to do a photography project on child labor for more than two decades. The topic he settled on, the exploitation of children in small-scale gold mining, was by no means an easy one to document. Just getting his lens on the subject proved difficult, at times requiring Price to climb down into steep, narrow shafts that plunged up to 300 feet into the earth—all while continuing to photograph, film and record.

Climbing Aboard the Arctic Hunter
In this episode, we hear from Steve Ringman, the photojournalist behind "Sea Change" a multimedia series on ocean acidification from the Seattle Times. As part of this assignment, Steve climbed aboard the Arctic Hunter, a crab-fishing vessel in the Bering Sea not unlike those featured in the television show 'The Deadliest Catch.' What was supposed to be a straightforward four-day trip, turned into a tumultuous ten-day voyage. Listen in to hear Steve recount what it was like to be a journalist at sea documenting an industry threatened by ocean acidification.

Diving into Ocean Acidification
Ocean acidification is one of our planet's most overlooked threats. The souring of the oceans–a result of excessive carbon dioxide emissions–will affect livelihoods and lives that depend on the sea as a source of income and diet. Craig Welch co-created "Sea Change," an award-winning series from the Seattle Times devoted to teaching people about the science behind ocean acidification, how it is changing life in the sea, and how it will affect all of us.

Alberta's Oil Sands
Print and audio journalist Dan Grossman, along with aerial photographer Alex MacLean, took to the skies in a Cessna 722, a plane whose cabin is comparable to that of a Volkswagen Beetle. Their goal: to capture the scale of the Alberta tar sands, the third largest oil reserve in the world. In our conversation, Dan recounts what it was like to soar over the oil fields, bearing witness to humanity's unquenchable thirst for energy.
