Ep. 4 – Dr. Sheila Steinberg speaks on the Dalai Lama and climate change

July 13, 2015 by Cindy O'Dell

Sheila Steinberg in studioDr. Sheila Lakshmi Steinberg helped launch the Brandman Speaks podcast series as a pilot project this spring. The Communications Department will begin a regular series of podcasts this fall, but we couldn’t resist turning the tables on Steinberg first.

As an environmental sociologist and a professor in the School of Arts and Science, Steinberg has long had an interest in climate change and its effect on humans. When she learned that His Holiness the Dalai Lama was celebrating his 80th birthday in Orange County and joining a panel discussion on climate change as part of the Global Compassion Summit held at UC Irvine, she made arrangements to attend and offered to share her observations. So instead of Steinberg asking the questions, we asked them.

You can listen to the podcast here or download it from iTunes.

Beginning this fall, we want many more Brandman University faculty members, including adjunct faculty members and those who teach through Extended Education, to join us at the podcast microphones to talk about their areas of expertise.

If you’re interested in being part of Brandman Speaks, please fill out the interest form.  You can also subscribe to podcasts via iTunes if you just want to listen.
