Wish there was more

I love this podcast. Not only do I live the awesomeness of the topics about the environment but I love the groups of people out there that is trying to save Earth. I love researching all these new company’s out there cause let’s be honest I probably wouldn’t have know it was out there or what to even look for. Also my resources could be limited in finding these amazing companies! Anyways I hope this pod cast comes back but sadly like any trend over time it fades away.

Teutschie ,

Happy to have stumbled upon this…

I’m a few episodes in and already taking an introspective look at my carelessness behavior - my daily waste output…WOW, embarrassing. I’ve dabbled with vegetarian/vegan eating, but more encouraged to take a firmer lifestyle change. Also have to say, love the ‘Jarvis’-like character who pops in with definitions…helps those of us with novice level knowledge of science feel welcome. Thank you for getting this info out there, we can all do better.
