Catastrophic" is a raw collection of short stories from people all over Australia giving their first hand accounts of what it is like to live through catastrophic bushfires and face the aftermath. It is a way for people to express their fear and their grief and a call to action to all political parties to get real about taking action on Climate Change."
The overwhelming majority of Australians are screaming for all politicians to get off their butts and do SOMETHING about climate change. But our climate denying government isn't listening.
So Listen Up Podcasting decided to make "Catastrophic" to force them to listen.
