Author Ben Goldfarb on the power—and peril—of roads

Sep 12, 2023

Aaron and Kate are joined by Ben Goldfarb, an award-winning environmental journalist and author who covers wildlife conservation, marine science, and public lands management, to talk about his new book, Crossings: How Road Ecology Is Shaping the Future of Our Planet, which is out now from Norton. In Crossings, Goldfarb explores how roads have made our planet perilous to animals, as well as how we can make roads safer for both wildlife and people. Goldfarb’s first book, Eager: The Surprising, Secret Life of Beavers and Why They Matter, won the 2019 PEN/E.O. Wilson Literary Science Writing Award and was listed on the Washington Post’s 50 Notable Works of Nonfiction.
