Ashes Ashes is a show about the end of the world. These are tales of systems out of control, environmental collapse and ultimately a broken world. Through deep research, knowledgeable guests and historical anecdotes, Ashes Ashes brings light to failures that are often ignored or hidden just out of sight. With each story we hope to inspire action toward fixing these problems — while we still have time to. Every episode is lovingly researched and crafted because we care, we're optimists, and we believe in a better world.
