Details and great delivery

I have been listening for a short time and already have made connections between what local action I can take in my New England community to fight the fossil fuel industry. Thank you!

By far my favourite podcast

I’ve generally struggled to get into podcasts because I can never really keep up with the info. This podcast has stories that keep you interested, with a good mix of narrative and interviews in an easy to understand way. It breaks climate issues down into concrete examples rather than vague ideas. I also like how the ads on the podcast are for things viewers would actually be interested, rather than the standard sponsors that other podcasts tend to use. I guess my only complaint is that I wish episodes came out more often, because if so it would probably be the only thing I listened to.
