Confessions of a Podfader
I developed this weird cough and my throat was hurting if I talked for more than a couple of minutes. Couple that with a state of environmental depression and a feeling of not being able to make a difference - and podfading for over a year made sense. Now, more than ever, having the conversation about creating a more sustainable way of life, is important. Let me know if you want to be part of this conversation

The Plan for 2019
Marianne takes a look at where we have been and where we are going.

The formats will vary but the goal will always be to bring you interesting and useful information.
