In 1988, I created Pulse of the Planet as an alternative to "The News", because it seemed that most of the news was giving us a very narrow view of human endeavor. Today, more than ever before, our media is being hijacked by power politics, violence and negativity. Of course there are other subjects worthy of our attention. Why not have a program that tracks the rhythms of nature, culture and science every day, giving listeners a taste of the current of life that sustains us all? To date, I've produced over six thousand Pulse of the Planet programs, covering a broad spectrum of subjects, and whenever possible, celebrating them with their sounds.

In four decades, I've never asked our listeners for help. But now, with a little help from the folks at Patreon, the time seems right to crowd-source support for Pulse of the Planet – to help bring stories which portray the positive side of what it means to be human.

In recent years, Pulse's programs have focused mostly on science, technology and the environment – all important arenas. But I very much want to return to telling more stories about indigenous peoples and cultural traditions, which help remind us of who we are and we are here.

In supporting Pulse on Patreon, you'll become part of a community of listeners who are taking a positive action over what they hear on radio and podcasts.

As patron you'll receive some exclusive perks – including gems from my audio archive, amazing sounds from around the world, interviews with extraordinary people, rarely heard past programs, and behind-the-scenes glimpses of what it takes to produce some of the stories you hear every day on Pulse. There are several tiers of support and you can stop at any time.

Please consider becoming a patron to support the production of Pulse of the Planet and help in the creation of an archive of the thousands of sounds and interviews I've recorded over the past 40 years.

Thank-you!
