    Ciderology (DELICIOUS APPLE BEVERAGE) with Gabe Cook

    Ciderology (DELICIOUS APPLE BEVERAGE) with Gabe Cook

    How ya like them apples?! Well, liquified. And fermented. Author, podcaster, cider-maker and globally lauded beverage historian Gabe Cook, aka The Ciderologist, is an enthusiastic champion of this tragically overlooked drink, and he joins with a bushel full of facts, well-spun yarns and tasting tips. Belly up for a foaming glass of friendly competition, bucolic farmhouses, DIY cider tips, film flam busters, cider recommendations from a pro, and a little ASMR. Cider: that cool friend in the corner who is too shy to boast about itself, so its wingman speaks up.

    Eudemonology (HAPPINESS) with Laurie Santos

    Eudemonology (HAPPINESS) with Laurie Santos

    HAPPINESS RESEARCH, straight up. What is happiness? How do our circumstances affect happiness? Why is the word “gratitude” kinda cringey? What can we do to feel better? Should we feel guilty for feeling happy? When is positivity “toxic?” Yale cognitive scientist, Eudemonologist, and host of The Happiness Lab podcast Dr. Laurie Santos chats about how scientists measure human happiness and what their research has shown helps achieve it, even during the worst of times. Also: silver medal face & countering counterfactuals, which will make sense when you listen.

    Spesh Ep: Drawdown Design Project with C. Andrew Hall

    Spesh Ep: Drawdown Design Project with C. Andrew Hall

    Art meets science! Problems meet solutions! Climate change meets … hope? In this atypical episode, things get casual as hell as Alie sits down to talk about the Drawdown Design Project: an illustration non-profit started by filmmaker, Emmy-nominated television editor and longtime friend Andy Hall. When he’s not having to edit Alie on Innovation Nation, Andy is the founder and creative director of the Drawdown Design Project, which commissioned some of the world’s most sought-after artists to illustrate climate solutions outlined by Drawdown.org. What resulted was the just-released limited-edition 200 print run of ENGAGE, EMPOWER, CULTIVATE and ELECTRIFY. Andy walks me through the passion, the production and the process of raising money for rainforests while making something gorgeous and uplifting. Also: I used to serve snacks on film sets.

    Is Your Carbon Footprint BS?: How to Save a Planet takes over Ologies

    Is Your Carbon Footprint BS?: How to Save a Planet takes over Ologies

    Dr. Ayana Elizabeth Johnson. You loved her Oceanology episode and now she is in your feed to address everyone’s agonizing internal question: IS MY CARBON FOOTPRINT BS?! I don’t drop a lot of podcast episodes into my precious Ologies feed, but this topic was so wonderfully covered by Dr. Johnson and co-hot Alex Blumberg that I had to do it. And as a bonus, stay tuned for Wednesday’s episode between me and my old friend C. Andrew Hall, the creative director of the non-profit illustration collective, the Drawdown Design Project. I’ve been consulting with him for 2 years on a giant project that just dropped and I think you’ll love what he has to say about our individual roles and responsibilities in climate change. 

     

    So yes: onward with “How to Save a Planet.”

We chat about honeybees vs. native ones, hives vs. nests, honey, how to become a beekeeper, social structures, why a queen becomes a queen, how to keep Mason bees as outdoor pets, if you should eat honey to deal with seasonal allergies, and why planting some flowers could make you and the bees pretty happy.

    Indigenous Fire Ecology (GOOD FIRE) with Amy Christianson

    Indigenous Fire Ecology (GOOD FIRE) with Amy Christianson

    Cultural burns. Prescribed blazes. A healthy forest. What exactly is “good fire?” Let’s ask Indigenous fire scientist Dr. Amy Christianson, who is a co-host of the podcast ...Good Fire. This wonderfully generous and informed scholar took a quick break from her Canadian wilderness vacation to fill me in on Indigenous history, collaborations between Western science & First Nations elders, Aboriginal thoughts on cultural burns, flim-flam, evacuations, snowmelt, hunting strategies, land stewardship, happy trees, climate strategies, and the social science behind wildfire education. Also learning from Native wildfire fighters. Huge thanks to her and Matt Kristoff -- who also hosts the Your Forest Podcast -- for allowing us to use excerpts from their interview to launch Good Fire. Subscribe to both podcasts to get more ecological knowledge in your ears.

Rozkosny ,

Cheers!

After a particularly glum day, I cheered up while listening to the Ciderology episode. I cracked open a Blueberry Pomegranate Cider when I got home, and it tasted better knowing the science, history, and passion that brought this glass of cider to my mouth. Thanks Dad Ward for the much needed boost! And thanks Ologies team for all your amazing work! I appreciate you!

Petty Patricia ,

Listen to this podcast.. no, seriously, do it.

Alie has the PERFECT podcast personality and voice. She is all of us encapsulated in a lovely, red-headed skin suit; asking all the things we are too scared to ask and getting all the answers to feed our last two brain cells. The editing is phenomenal, thank you Steven Ray Morris, and guides the listener perfectly through their weekly ology adventure!
And if you stay to the end of the review, you know that I tell you a little secret, so this reviewer’s secret is that I have never written a review for a podcast literally ever, but felt entirely compelled to do so for this podcast specifically. Okay, bur-bye!

Noam Berg ,

What a fantastic podcast

Multiple people recommended Ologies to me, so I started listening from the beginning. Hot diggety, this podcast is good. Funny, a li’l dirty, super informative and fascinating. I really appreciate how many lady ologists are on the show. It’s vital right now to give women in STEM more visibility, hopefully to inspire future generations. I love the passion that Alie and her guests have for the topics they discuss. Enthusiasm is kinda really sexy. Is that weird? I don’t care. If you have a curious mind and enjoy listening to passionate people geek out about what they do, give this podcast a listen.
