This month's podcast with guest Nathan Rott, NPR journalist, focuses on international reporting on wildfires and how recent fires have burned areas flames aren't usually able to penetrate, like rainforests in Australia. The conversation also addresses the bigger issue scientists have been warning about for a while with wildfire: That a warming climate means parts of the world that used to NOT burn are now susceptible to fire.
