Unreal quality and killer content

I listen to podcasts every day, and none sounds as good as this one. The audio is impeccable. The content is even more impressive -- I'm consistently amazed by the quality of work, diversity of interviews and topics, and depth of understanding this team shows. Proof positive that podcasts about science and government can be nerdy and cool at the same time.

Energy Policy Nerds Rejoice!

Took an unfortunate turn under the new administration, which still has yet to right.

Grease, crap, and algae episode

I am encouraged to see the possibilities to turn problems into solutions. My tax dollars are well spent when the labs do this research. I know that corporations will never fund this type of research with their short term quarterly earnings approach to investing. The earth has massive carrying capacity and we need to take care of this. Thankyou for this meaningful difficult work!!
