A South Norfolk-based charity communications professional is to take over as host on the popular Carbon Copy podcast, which launches its third series on March 20.

Isabelle Sparrow has lived in Wymondham since early 2020, and began working for climate charity Carbon Copy in May of the same year.

“I’ve always cared about the environment, but it was really when I had my first child that I started to feel more anxious about the future, and like I needed to channel that anxiety into action. I’ve always worked in communications and PR, so when I saw the role come up at Carbon Copy it seemed like a perfect fit.”

The podcast is one of a wide variety of ways the charity communicates about local climate action, including a national collection of a thousand stories from organisations all across the UK, area-specific information about the changing climate and Climate Action Plans; media campaigns and blogs; and nationwide events that bring people together.

“We launched the podcast back in 2022, and the previous two series were hosted by Carbon Copy’s co-founder, Ric Casale; but we are changing things up a bit with series 3, getting much more into the personal stories of our guests, really trying to draw out the passion and dedication they have to making a difference.

“I’m a huge fan of podcasts myself, and I particularly love human interest stories that open the door to a whole new way of thinking about things. I hope that the Carbon Copy Podcast can create that kind of experience for listeners – and leads more people to get involved in climate action projects where they live.”

Episode 1, which focuses on the Save Hemsby Coastline campaign, is available to download from all mainstream podcast platforms.
