    60. Why Should You Care About Plants? (with Vikram Baliga PhD, Creator of Planthropology)

    It's the final episode of Season 4! To celebrate the end of this chapter, Jack is joined by the fantastic Vikram Baliga to discuss Plants, PhDs and Podcasts! 

    The dynamic duo discuss the importance of not letting plants fade into the background, the threats some of Vikram's favourite plants face, and how we can all help to protect these incredible, important beings! This includes chat's about Urban Gardening, Prairies, the Bristlecone Pine, and the power of disconnecting from your phone. 

    It doesn’t stop there though as the pair also take some time to chat about Jack's upcoming PhD at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh. They discuss what his project is all about, and Vikram provides him with some great advice on how to persist through this amazing challenge! 

    One final thing, because this is the last episode, I just want to say a huge thank you to everyone who has supported the show this season. You are the absolute best and I already cant wait to start on season 5. Your love means the absolute world!

    Superheroes & Engaging Young People
    Restorative Practices 
    Policy & Impact
    Everyday Wildlife 
    Photography

    I also discuss the amazing keynote speeches from Julie Packard, Robin Wall Kimmerer, and Leander Lacy! 

    Thank you to all of the incredible friends I made while in Tucson, thank you to the NAAEE, and thank you to all of the incredible people who have listened to this series! I would not have had such an amazing trip without you! 💚

    Hello friends! Today I went on a bird walk and experienced the sights, tastes, smells and feelings of Arizona!
