Watershed is a podcast about Floridian culture and the changing environment.

Watershed is a podcast exploring Florida in flux. Each month we feature character-driven, sound-rich stories from across the Sunshine State about how we shape Florida’s environment and the environment shapes us.

Our stories run the gamut: Tag along with a panther biologist. Learn about challenges facing our fishing communities. Connect with the politicians shaping environmental policy. Meet a mermaid.
