This is Upside Down: The Podcast from the Chesapeake Climate Action Network.  Where we bring new insights into the upside of the clean energy revolution, and the dark realities of dirty energy.

Why are we making a podcast?

At CCAN we believe that communication is essential for achieving meaningful climate policy. We have baked it deeply into the way we fight for bold climate solutions where we work. This podcast is another extension of the way we hope to reach a wider audience and bring more folks into the fight with us. 

What can you expect from this feed?

From this feed you’ll hear from CCAN staff who work to achieve the climate action that this moment demands. You’ll get recaps of CCAN events. You’ll hear from our executive director, Mike Tidwell about CCAN’s vision to achieve a clean energy future for all. 

We will also have the voices of industry leaders in environment and politics joining us.

Why should you listen?

Each episode will provide you with more information and knowledge about the big climate fights we are tackling, how to get involved, and what the plan is to win these fights. Listening to our show will keep you engaged and informed about what you can do to help all of us win a clean energy future.
