Lee’s Weather Team has launched a fast-paced weekly podcast that tackles hot (and cold!) topics and trends in weather, science, and climate.

The team includes Matt Holiner of Lee Enterprises‘Chicago-based Midwest Group; Kirsten Lang from Tulsa World in Oklahoma; Joe Martucci of Atlantic City Press, NJ; and Sean Sublette from Richmond Times-Dispatch in Virginia.

There’s more to the show than hard science as our hosts will welcome a variety of guests to share stories that will fire your emotions from stories in the elements.

“We want to talk about topics that really stimulate a conversation or we’re going to talk about stories that you as a listener can really really follow in your head to (and) get out for a few minutes and listen to those stories,” Martucci said of the show’s goals during the initial podcast.
