Teacher

A brilliant interview with Steve Koonin thank you so much. As a retired geography teacher I spent many years teaching my students the effects of world and planet changes in population, food production, poverty and climate changes with hope. I encouraged my students to realise that they can and will create, invent and solve these issues like their parents and grandparents before them. We put a man on the moon, how amazing was that for our grandparents! Some solutions, we have seen already in farming, housing, education etc. Give our children HOPE not emotional, irrational, sensationalised, poorly research scientific media information put forward as unquestionable scientific facts.

Courageous voice

Thank you for your interview with Abigail Shrier. It is important to have Abigail’s insight and research into these issues which are impacting on our young ones here in Australia.

Needs audio normalisation

Great content but in road trips I can’t use the full range of my volume as it’s not normalised which can easily be fixed with setting a floor and ceiling to cap off random peaks then normalising the waveforms.

Someone mentioned you can do this on audacity and yes you can do it. I have produced my own podcast this way.
Plenty of instructions on web.
