An enjoyable podcast

I have listened to this podcast since it was inaugurated. I have been a long time fan of Sean's Second Decade podcast. In this one he teams up with Cody Climir on the movie discussed and to give an intelligent and entertaining discussion of movies that touch on enviornmental concerns in some manner. They do thorough research on the movie itself, and have comprehensive knowledge of enviornmental issues, as that is Sean's field of expertise. This is well worth listening to for those with an interest in motion pictures.
