Description

Rachel Nuwer (@RachelNuwer) is an award-winning freelance journalist who reports about science, travel, food, and adventure for The New York Times, National Geographic, Scientific American, and more. Her multi-award-winning first book, Poached: Inside the Dark World of Wildlife Trafficking, is out now.


What We Discuss with Rachel Nuwer:



  • What drives the global demand for resources cruelly derived from endangered wildlife.

  • Why poachers and smugglers are willing to risk their own lives to meet this demand.

  • The pros and cons of solutions proposed to stem the tide of this illicit trade -- from legalizing it for sustainable sourcing to synthesizing alternatives.

  • Why governments are shy to throw the book at the worst offenders, and how the most clever, wealthy, and well-connected usually (but don't always) bypass legal repercussions for their trafficking transgressions.

  • What we can do here and now to promote policies for preserving these species before they vanish forever.

  • And much more...
