    Do energy companies care what we think?

    Do energy companies care what we think?

    The last month has been characterised by soaring energy prices resulting from sanctions following the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Although it's made everyone acutely aware of the dependence on fossil fuel imports, it's made many really question our relationship with our energy providers, and whether there should be state intervention to manage this relationship. Why do energy firms still make profit while many households can't afford their new bills? In this episode, we speak to energy branding expert Dr Fridrik Larsen about the relationship between energy companies and their customers. Do they care what we think, or are they just out for profit devoid of purpose?

    Sustainable travel, flying and flightshaming

    In the season 1 finale of the Be Loud: Climate podcast, Keran and Ruxi are breaking down travel in a climate change era. We will look at the meanings of popular terms with the help of our guests Wesley Maraire, Founder of Tiritose Sustainable Travel Agency in Zimbabwe, and Caroline Wangechi, tours and travel consultant, Kenya.
    In the second part, we address the elephant in the room: air travel and a little more about offsets (with some side notes about cruise ships - because we can’t take those out of the equation).
