Informative, entertaining, and so much fun!

Not only is this podcast incredibly essential during these times, but it's REALLY entertaining and fun! The hosts are a treat to listen to and play off each other really well. The subject matter is both informative and helpful. And this trio really succeeds at playing off the nostalgia of Captain Planet while applying it to environmental issues we face today. I recommend this podcast to anyone who cares about the environment (whether you remember Captain Planet or not) and wants to learn how we can protect the planet in an exciting and engaging manner.
