LOS ANGELES, Oct. 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The entertainment industry's premiere environmental group, the Environmental Media Association (EMA), has partnered with LineupMedia.fm to launch a network of podcasts that will focus on eco-oriented issues. The weekly shows, hosted by EMA's Debbie and Asher Levin, will feature candid discussions with celebrities and influencers, including Mark Ruffalo, Lance Bass, Constance Zimmer, Moby, Van Jones and Karrueche Tran, among others.
"Our goal is to host in-depth discussions that highlight the environmental activism and education that so many of our partners are involved in," said Asher Levin, EMA's Director of Business Development. "Because of their continued growth and presence in the podcast-space, LineupMedia.fm was the most logical partner for us and we're excited to get the ball rolling." The Environmental Media Network will begin with two shows: Organic Lunch with Debbie Levin and Green for All with Asher Levin. Every episode will be available at EnvironmentalMediaNetwork.com along with iTunes, Google Play, Stitcher and all major podcast platforms.
The podcast network's launch is set to coincide with the annual EMA Awards, which will take place Saturday, October 22nd, at Warner Bros. Studios. Hosted by Nicole Richie, the star-studded gala will honor a variety of celebrities and influencers for their contributions to environmental activism, including Jaden Smith, Shailene Woodley and Robyn O'Brien. EMA/LineupMedia.fm will provide live, 360-degree video streaming of the event on EnvironmentalMediaNetwork.com.
The Environmental Media Association believes that through television, film and music, the entertainment community has the power to influence the environmental awareness of millions of people. EMA mobilizes the entertainment industry in educating people about environmental issues, which in turn, inspires them to take action. A pioneer in linking the power of celebrity to environmental awareness, it was EMA who invented the 'green carpet,' launching the concept of taking a hybrid or alternative fuel vehicle – not a limo – to high profile awards events and bringing the concept of alternative automotive technology to millions of previously unaware households. EMA is a non-profit 501(c)3 founded in 1989 by Cindy and Alan Horn and Lyn and Norman Lear. Learn more at Green4EMA.org
