Launched in 2015, In Defense of Plants makes the case for the evolutionary resiliency and environmental impact of flora. Host Matt Candeias seeks to share his self-described "obsess[ion] with the botanical world," reminding listeners that "plants are everything on this planet." Throughout the show's more than 275 episodes, listeners will hear about a range of topics, such as assessing extinction risk (Episode 275 "Saving Sonora: The Green Desert" with special guest Dr. Helen Rowe) and harnessing plant-power for mindfulness (Episode 269 "Cultivating Peace" with special guest Derek Haynes). Most episodes are about an hour long, perfect for a commute or lunch break. On the Podcast page, readers will find an archive of all episodes, with descriptions of each episode's guest(s) and content. Readers will also find a frequently updated blog and embedded videos that build on some episodes' content. Beyond the website, listeners can tune in to the show on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and other popular listening platforms. New episodes are released weekly, so check back often or subscribe to never miss a show.
