Green Street Radio, the environmental health show hosted by Patti and Doug Wood, can now be heard Tuesdays at 10 a.m. on WBAI-FM in New York and streaming live worldwide at wbai.org. The show is produced by Grassroots Environmental Education, a nonprofit with a mission to educate the public about the links between common environmental exposures and human health.
Every week the Woods and their network of scientific experts and advocates discuss the news of the week and then talk about a particular issue in depth. They cover a variety of issues that can impact people’s health, from fracking to flame retardants, wireless radiation to synthetic turf, pesticides to plastic. If it’s in the air we breathe, the water we drink or the food we eat, chances are it will be a focus of discussion on Green Street.
Patti Wood is a visiting scholar at Adelphi University, where she lectures on the environment and related health issues in the School of Nursing and serves in the College of Arts and Sciences. She is the recipient of the 2016 Children’s Environmental Health Excellence Award from the Environmental Protection Agency.
Doug Wood is a filmmaker, author, composer and political strategist. He is the producer of numerous films on environmental issues and serves on the Board of Directors of the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers.
