S2 Bonus Episode: "The Face" with Dany Celermajer
This bonus episode, exclusive to Sentient Planet listeners, accompanies our Season 2 episode, "Living Through Fire with Danielle Celermajer."
Dany reads "The Face," a short chapter from Summertime: Reflections on a Vanishing Future (Penguin Books Australia 2021). Her brave and unflinching account of animal sentience beseeches us to wake up and face up to the climate crisis and the torture and death it is already wreaking upon the Earth’s multitude of lifeforms.
We dedicate this reading to Katy, Dany's beloved pig, who perished in the Black Summer bushfires of 2019-20.
