Loach-like

I really want to love this podcast. I like the idea of it. I even like the extra short episode(although 3 mins would be fantastic). But somehow the speaking is so hard to grip on. I mean, the voice is friendly and pleasant, but it sounds like bunch of slippery loaches. The information quickly slips in and out, it’s hard to catch or absorb much of it.

Good but too fast

This podcast is a 2 minute description of a climate change fact. While the idea of the podcast, even the bite size notion of it is good, they literally need to speak slower and pause more... by the time the 2 minutes are done, I realize I didn’t understand what just happened because it went by too fast

communicating climate change as an Existential threat

It might have been the Moyers interview or a TED Talk or it could have been the Wirters Guild's Panel discussion "What's So Funny About Climate Change?" from a number of years ago where I first heard... "it's real; it's us; it's bad; scientists agree it’s happening; and there's hope" This from THE key communicator who will make you pay attention to the clear and present danger that is Climate Change. SHARE, LIKE AND SUBSCRIBE to this podcast it will open your eyes in easily to digest in bite sized sound bites. BRAVO
