    How do we get people to care about the environment? - Highlights - LEE McINTYRE

    “Getting people to care is the most important thing. I went all the way to the Maldives for research for my book How to Talk to a Science Denier because I wanted to see coral death. I wanted to see the Maldives. I wanted to see the country most under threat from climate change. One of my teachers was a 17 or 18-year-old kid who was the captain of a fishing boat. He said, "Oh, sir, outside the Maldives, no one cares." And that was when I realized that climate denial was not just about belief, it was about caring. He was right. Could you get people to care? How do you get people to care about what happens to the Maldives? They have to go there and meet people and/or know someone in order to care. I've been really fortunate in my life to have had so many teachers in that way, sometimes through short interactions.”

    Exploring Spirituality: A Computational Physicist’s Perspective - STEPHEN WOLFRAM

    Exploring Spirituality: A Computational Physicist’s Perspective - STEPHEN WOLFRAM

    “It’s interesting to me that there are things that people have an intuitive sense of and have for a long, long time had an intuitive sense of that sometimes in science, there's been a tendency to say, "Oh, no, no, no. We have a particular way of thinking about things in science and that doesn't fit with it. So let's lock it out," so to speak. So an example of that, well, for example, animism; you mentioned this question of where are their minds? Is it reasonable to think of the weather as having a mind of its own? Is it reasonable to think of the forest as having a mind, so to speak? Well, in these kind of computational terms, yes, it does become reasonable to think about those things. Now if you say then, one comes to that idea from a place of formalized science, but nevertheless, it relates to sort of intuitions that people have had for a long time about that come from that didn't come from that particular kind of branch formalized thinking.”

    Beyond the Surface: Embracing Nature's Complexity with Philosopher KEITH FRANKISH

    Beyond the Surface: Embracing Nature's Complexity with Philosopher KEITH FRANKISH

    “One thing I love about living in Crete is that the sense of the presence of nature is always here. I walk out the door and I can see the mountains around the city. I can see the White Mountains (Lefka Ori), which for half the year are covered in snow. I can see the sea. If you walk out in the summer, you're immediately aware of your physicality. You become dehydrated very quickly. It's not necessarily a kind environment for humans. It's not if you engage in any vigorous activity, but it's one that makes you feel vividly alive."

Incredible Podcast

Having been led to One Planet through The Creative Process’ main channel, I came to this podcast with high expectations. I can confidently say that after listening to several One Planet episodes, those expectations have been beyond met! This podcast stands out as another gem, this time in the realm of environmentalism and activism. Having space for intentional dialogue on topics related to environmental activism is becoming more and more important, and One Planet offers such a space in a nurturing and meaningful way. One Planet explores a wide range of important questions such as “What does it mean to have an ecological mind? How can interdisciplinary collaborations help us move beyond educational silos and create sustainable futures? What can turtles teach us about time, patience, and wisdom?” Questions such as these invite and engage the listener in an interactive and introspective experience. So if you are looking for a podcast with engaging discussions, though-provoking interviews, and meaningful content, I can’t recommend One Planet enough. Five stars without hesitation!
