Let’s talk Seaweed

This podcast reached me all the way down in Canberra! Firstly following The Environmental Cowboy; interest in seaweed farming, and personally pursuing to play a bigger part in climate change. Now I have discovered Ocean Protect! Rad podcasts. I enjoy the rapport between all of you speaking. Such great flow. Look forward to more. Much Aloha, Maile
