EwaWhateva ,

Thanks for sharing an entertaining and funny side of Greenpeace!

I’m so happy to hear stories coming from "real people" and that they are short enough to listen to while on the go in my busy life!

Miss C. Lake ,

This I can do...

I admittedly have only ever listened to one podcast before. And even though that one was an interview with one of my favorite authors it was still a stretch for me to get through. But these are great. Informative and conscise with even a bit of wit and humour. Well done!
