Amazing

I really enjoy learning from Claire every week how I can make a difference and what is hurting the environment.

it's that good

Doomed this pod cast is not! So interesting and so much information in such a short time. The sound was amazing and Claire's style is terrific. Even if hawaii is not home, the information is relatable to main landers. Amyone interested in the environment should make this a "go to" pod cast

Very interesting!

I just listened to the first episode and it was great! It was clear, to the point, and interesting. I especially liked that they touched on the societal changes that need to happen involving climate change, instead of just focusing on individual changes, as that is something that I think is not talked about often enough. Overall a very interesting listen!
