It's goodbye to another old friend, with the news that Earthbeat Radio is on hiatus while they try to find funds.
For the last few years, their hour-long weekly podcast has been a source of news and interviews in the environmental field which is almost unrivalled. Although American-based and therefore not always relevant, it was still good to keep up to date with the goings-on in Washington DC as well as hear from the movers and shakers whenever there was a crisis.
Their reports from the Mexican Gulf during the BP oil spill last year were a particular highlight, as were their pursuit of the truth regarding the Koch Brothers' funding of climate deniers.
Losing Earthbeat and the Guardian Edinburgh Beatblog in the same week sucks!
