John Vaillant on Our Increasingly Flammable World
In Conversation with Toby Mundy on the Baillie Gifford Prize Podcast, Read Smart
It’s the latest episode of the Read Smart podcast, and today Toby Mundy will be speaking to another one of this year’s shortlisted authors: John Vaillant. John’s work Fire Weather explores the apocalyptic wildfire that took place in Fort McMurray in 2016, as well as the past and future of our increasingly flammable world. The shortlisted book delves into the intertwining histories of the oil industry and climate science, alongside the urgent reality that our planet currently faces.
