Compelling and Informative

There is not much more I can add to the accolades already provided in the reviews. This is the one podcast in my subscription that I listen to as soon as it is released. I am a life long Virgininian and see how the SE United States is affected by climate change. This podcast allows you to hear from the residents being directly affected and explains the issues in an easy to understand and compassionate format. Thank you to the creators of this podcast.
