Mini Geology Interview

Daniel Minisini who hosts Mini Geology on Houston's local radio station KPFT chatted with us about the founding and future of the museum

Below you'll find the full interview between Daniel Minisini and HCJM co-founder Aaron Ambroso about why we started the HCJM, details about some of the works in our first exhibit, and where we see the space fitting into the larger landscape relating to climate issues and activism.

“Part of the conception of this museum was to have a space where we could talk about nature critically and cross-culturally...A lot of what we do here is critiquing the systems that have gotten us here and that continue to propel us in a very unsustainable direction, but we also try to create new narratives to create inspiration and wonder. I think the ultimate goal of our museum is to inspire people to action.”

Mini Geology is a digital town square where Daniel Minisini conducts interviews to explore the relationships of Geology with other scientific disciplines and with different aspects of life. Find him on KPFT, YouTube, and Twitter
