Captivating Series

Race against time

2050 may seem far away but it is not and it is important that businesses and governments alike start taking climate change seriously now to see it's effects by 2050. Good insight.

Matt’s opinion of this podcast ,

What a trip!

I was expecting this podcast to have great and well-researched info— in a dry, typical business package. That is not at all what this is.

It really is an immersive vision of what the near future may manifest as. We are taken on tours of energy islands and clean fuel silos buzzing with repair drones. All the while, our host is giving us info on what these systems do, what they are made of, and why they’re a part of our most optimistic future. The writers and producers should be extremely proud of this.
