    Chaos Theory

    Chaos Theory

    The world is doomed, climate change is unstoppable! Where’s the positive in that?
    Professor Myles Allen is the Head of Climate Dynamics at Oxford University and runs the project climateprediction.net. He’s been an influential voice in multiple peer-reviewed IPCC guiding policy documents and has had a fascinating career. He also happens to know that there is a workable solution to climate change - and we believe him because he’s been in the room with the oil industry (and he’s very smart).
    We can save the world – hurray.

Wholesome

A real pleasure is this. Had a glum day recently, put this on, pulled up some weeds in the flowerbed and it sorted me right out. Keep it coming!

Life changing podcast

A joy to listen to. The topics, the guests, the way the interviews are conducted along with the fact that these two have a genuine friendship makes for an utterly inspiring listen. I have been inspired to take up rollerblading, start incorporating a few Ayurvedic rituals into my life and have added many books to my reading list I might not have otherwise thought to read.
Thank you for expanding my knowledge on different subjects and brightening my life.

So positive and uplifting

I’ve just listened to the first of these podcasts, which I found interesting and uplifting. Giles and Julia are so easy to listen to and Richard was a great first guest. On to episode 2 :)
