    Ep 48: Water, Water, Everywhere: Quicker, Easier Hydroelectric Power

    This week on Everybody in the Pool, we’re talking about hydroelectric power, without the dams and major infrastructure and a little less worry about drought, to boot. Molly Wood talks with Emily Morris, founder and CEO of Emrgy, about how distributed hydroelectric systems are becoming a key player in the renewable energy mix. We talk about the historical and modern significance of hydropower, its environmental considerations, and how Emergy is both modernizing water infrastructure and also grabbing every last drop of available energy.

    Episode 46: Ryan Panchadsaram on Tracking Progress to Net Zero by 2050

    Episode 46: Ryan Panchadsaram on Tracking Progress to Net Zero by 2050

    This week on Everybody in the Pool, we’re taking a step back to take a look at the data and see how we’re tracking toward making it to net zero by 2050. Ryan Pancharadsam is a partner at Kleiner Perkins and together with legendary clean tech investor John Doerr, he wrote a book called Speed & Scale, breaking down the climate crisis into a series of categories with accomplishable objectives attached to them. We’ll talk about the team’s newly updated tracker, looking at progress toward our survival, and the places where we need to move a lot farther and a lot faster to make it to net zero.

    Episode 45: Making Better Everything with Natural Materials

    Episode 45: Making Better Everything with Natural Materials

    Lots of brands, from BMW to Stella McCartney to Allbirds, are using all-natural fibers, textiles, and even shoe soles that are nontoxic and totally recyclable. And all of those materials come from one place: NFW, or Natural Fiber Welding. Molly Wood interviews Luke Haverhals, the founder and CEO of NFW, about how the company develops “recipes” using abundant natural resources and runs them through existing manufacturing infrastructure, enabling a scalable transition away from fossil fuel-derived materials.

    Episode 44: Solving the Plastic Crisis with Seaweed

    Episode 44: Solving the Plastic Crisis with Seaweed

    Sometimes the water-related titles really write themselves. This week, Molly goes under the sea with Julia Marsh of Sway, which is developing a replacement for plastic using seaweed. Julia explains that seaweed is abundant, regenerative, and can be made into a replacement for single-use plastics using almost the exact same processes that are currently used to make plastic. Also, this is a woman who really, really loves seaweed.

Antidote to dooooooom

There’s probably no one big solution (short of consumer-ready fusion?) but lots and lots of little ones. This is a great place to learn about some of them.

I’m a long time fan of Molly Wood, and I love that she’s bringing her no-nonsense investigatory style to the do-something side of the issue.

(Weirdly enough, I learned about this podcast from an interview on another podcast that I was listening tto while working out - in the pool.)

A wonderful listen

I’ve been a fan of Molly Wood for years but dragged my feet on adding another climate change podcast to my listening but after catching one episode I’m all in. Molly is a great moderator. She has fascinating guests with great ideas. It’s easy to listen and I’m binging all the episodes to catch up. I’m inspired and learning a lot.

Informative podcast

I am a long time fan of Molly Wood from her CNET days and listened to her on Make me smart. I learn from every podcast.
