Welcome to the Sound Defense Alliance Podcast!
Hosts: Terra Huey & Caitlin Epstein
Birds singing, waves crashing, the pitter-patter of rain - these are sounds you’d expect from NW Washington. They’re also sounds being relentlessly disrupted by the roar of Navy Growler jets. Join Sound Defense Alliance Media Coordinator Terra Huey and Media Activist Caitlin Epstein to learn about the military’s harm on health, children, climate, animals, and more. Listen to hear how YOU can help protect the sounds of wind, birds, and waves.
Learn about the harmful impacts of the Navy's EA-18G Growler jets on our communities around the Salish Sea, Puget Sound, Olympic Peninsula and more.
This 12-episode series dives into the complex issues around noise, air, and water pollution and how the military contributes to each of them through their Navy Growler jet training program and other harmful activities. Hearing loss, PFAS contamination, economics, and PTSD are just some of the topics we break down in this podcast series. Join us to learn more about what's happening around this issue and how you can get involved.
The SDA Podcast is available on several major listening platforms including Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and Amazon Music. Please listen, share, and help us promote our podcast to raise awareness around the community experiences, research, and concerns of military activity in NW Washington.
