    What would a world look like where you pay the true price for a product? Including all the environmental and social costs. It is crazy that all these externalities are not part of our accounting and thus pricing. We have often talked about true cost accounting and true pricing on the podcast but never really unpacked how to get there? There are many experiments happening at the moment and I’m very happy to unpack them with one of the pioneers in the space!

    Wow! Another crazy 12 months have flown by. We ended the 2020 overview with these words:
    We hope 2021 will be a ‘boring’ (as in uneventful) year where we start to focus on growth of the regenerative agriculture sector and start to build the key pieces for the rest of this decade to capture this momentum. 
    And boy, we were wrong and right. It was definitely not boring and, at the same time, lots of things started moving towards building the foundational blocks!

JFelzz ,

A finance program I can enjoy!

I am not in the field of finance, but I find this podcast incredibly illuminating and enjoyable. I love the insight into how we can bring the world of finance together with the world every generation, conservation, and climate medication and adaptation.I particularly appreciate that the host is not afraid to bring in considerationsThat are typically not spoken of in the world of finance, such asHow to protect the rights and welfare of the folks who live on the land, how to include economic development in landscape-level projects, and how to “right-size” the entire system of returns on capital investment.

A learning curve we all need to climb

Great guests, great questions, super informative.

DD Burlin ,

Informative

Pretty good podcast generally, and very good if you really want to think about how $$ can support regenerative ag. Sometimes the sound quality of the interviewees is not great, and I’d love to hear more on how these investments might actually return capital to investors. Exploring the details of financial models that have worked, and not worked, in a deeper way might move us all along that much quicker.
