We've recently changed the audio format for our live stream in order to improve the quality and to support more devices and services such as iHeartRadio.
Unfortunately, this means we can no longer support Internet Explorer for listening to our live stream as it does not support the new format. Please see our Streaming Guide for alternative ways to listen to our live stream on your computer, mobile or smart speaker devices.
Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause!
Understorey offers a simple Covid-19 backgrounder, to answer some basic questions about the environmental beginnings of the coronavirus, remind ourselves of the symptoms of covid-19, recount that thing about washing hands, consider fear and choose facts, and hear from the World Health Organization about what to say to young people, and generally how to be less anxious about this new normal. We start with what a virus is, consider the Chinese wildlife trade and challenge a few myths, check in with the 45th President to hear why shutting down the White House global pandemic NSA committee wasn't his responsibility, and in the light of all this, with perhaps more to come, suggest the answer to all these questions is simple compassionate connection.
