Sound and Style
Sound quality of the recording requires attention. Hard to listen to a voice that is coming from a tunnel.
Also suggest podcast needs to strike a more conversational tone rather than an interview with pre-agreed questions. Climate change is the most serious issue facing humanity. This podcast needs to be of the highest technical quality. Podcast listeners will subscribe if they feel part of an accessible conversation rather than being lectured to.
Despite these suggestions, I applaud The Climate Council for embarking on yet another way to communicate its crucial information on this platform.
Certainly a knowledgeable guy, huge amounts of quality material in the political and economic space. His knowledge is sketchy in other topics, such as base load power. Should certainly stick to areas of strength rather than detouring into dogma on less versed topics
Two thumbs up
Engaging, informative and easy to listen to. Can't recommend this podcast enough!! Love that I can now listen to the voices behind the Climate Council as well
