Carbon Lifeforms is a Radio 4 pilot that shows what it's like to be perfectly imperfect in a climate changing world.

Not content to simply be carbon neutral, comedian (and actual Council Waste Education Officer!) Jon Long teams up with scientist and TV presenter Tara Shine - along with an eclectic array of guests - for a new hybrid Radio 4 show that emits jokes, sketches, songs and irreverent facts as they aim to (carbon) capture all things climate and environment, demystify the issues, and help audiences make positive choices in their everyday lives.

In this pilot recording they'll be tackling 'Food' - the dirty, dangerous, and downright delicious. Featuring games of 'Play Your Carbon Footprint Right!', 'Bless Me, Tara, For I Have Sinned', and 'Greenwash of the Week'.
