Coastal SOCAN has developed a variety of presentations. Many of the presentations have been recorded as either video (YouTube) or audio (Podcast) files. For some of the presentations, the speaker has provided supporting material either their visual graphics (slides) or handouts. The following sections present the Podcasts, videos, and supporting materials.


In the southwest corner of coastal Oregon, we enjoy the benefit of both listener-supported public radio (KCIW) and public video archiving (Curry County Voices – CCV).  KCIW presents in-depth discussions by local and regional experts of a variety of topics of importance and interest to our community.  KCIW archives these discussions for later listening via podcasts on their website. Since early in 2019, KCIW has recorded 15 podcasts focusing on or related to climate change.
