Drilled: A True Crime Podcast About Climate Change

About the Drilled: A True Crime Podcast About Climate Change Series

The podcast Drilled investigates the propaganda campaign of the century — the creation of climate denial.

Season 1 traced the corporate-funded creation and spread of climate denial, including interviews with former Exxon scientists, primary source documents, and an in-depth look at the history of fossil fuel-funded influence campaigns.

Season 2: Hot Water follows a group of West Coast crab fisherman who are experiencing firsthand the devastating impacts of climate change. And this unlikely group of climate activists just became the first industry to sue Big Oil.

Season 3: The Mad Men of Climate Denial digs into the history of fossil fuel propaganda and the few “Mad Men of climate denial” who shaped it. 

The podcast is independently reported by climate journalist Amy Westervelt, and is supported in part by a grant from the Institute for Governance and Sustainable Development.
