Great New Podcast

City Rising is a great new podcast. It is very informative and the hosts are extremely knowledgeable, which helps make the podcast more crediable. I am excited to continue tuning in each week to listen and learn more about green/sustainable news and updates. Highly recommend for anyone that's interested in learning more about what cities are doing to help their cities become sustainable.

Excited to see where City Rising goes

City Rising is a positive force for climate solutions. In a time of fearing the administration’s next strike on the environment, City Rising interviews guests in a variety of cities that are making changes towards a better future. Can’t wait to hear the future episodes!
