Produced at PlainsFM. Every Earthwise programme features a discussion on conservation, environment or peace with justice. The interview might be with a local Cantabrian, with someone in a different part of the country, or a distinguished person from overseas. Broadcast on the first and third Monday evening at 9pm repeated the following Wednesday at 9:30am. The choice of topics varies considerably. Earthwise hopes that people who are especially interested in conservation will also find peace with justice issues interesting and vice versa.
