Our newest feature for Coast Insiders, The Art Bell Vault, features an expanding curated collection with two vintage shows added to the mix each Wednesday. This week's new programs explore climate change, beginning with an episode from January 30th, 2002 in which Art spoke with author Eugene Linden about environmental upheavals throughout history. While humanity may be threatened by climate change, he also noted that we owe something of a debt to the phenomenon as it likely had a hand in helping our species develop in the first place. Linden also speculated about how society will change to adapt to the evolving climate conditions.
Next up, we journey back to 5/2/2001, when Art was joined by biologist Dr. Peter Ward, who cautioned that there is likely already a catastrophic change happening to our climate and that the situation will undoubtedly only get worse. He also explained that while it may seem as if some parts of the world might benefit from environmental changes, the overall impact would be devastating for our planet as it would lead to a disruption of the food supply and subsequent conflicts over challenges that arise from that development.
These classic programs have commercials and breaks removed and are presented in multiple-platforms-- available on-demand for Mac, Windows, IOS, and Android. Many of them feature rare "5th" hours of content from back in the 90s when the show had a longer running time. We do include Art's beloved bumper music, which became such an indelible part of his program.
And for the true Art Bell fan, we offer different listening options to fine-tune your experience, such as guest only, and full show streams. Coast Insiders, we're very happy to bring this new offering to you at no additional charge to your subscription! We welcome your feedback.
