Love the variety of climate related stories that this pod tells

Brian Ettlaing ,

Love these daily climate inspiring podcasts

This is the first podcast I listen to each day for inspiration and it never disappoints. It is very informative about scientists, climate advoactes, researchers, and every day citizens who have been impacted by climate change and now want to make a difference educating others and acting on it. I highly recommend this podcast.
