Linda Sechrist, author and Natural Awakenings Sr Staff Writer,

I was a bit hesitant because of the beginning focus on the Yeti. However, I kept listening and when I heard the brilliant explanation about the Yeti and our human need to feel connected to the wild, as well as that about something that we humans can actually work together to achieve, while getting people to care about and for the Earth, I was hooked and subscribed to the podcasts. I so admire individuals who look for and find out-of-the-box concepts and solutions that are already being done (and have been proved) to solve our present crises.

Sustainability Superstars!

Jared and his incredibly knowledgeable guests shine the brightest of (solar powered) lights on what it means to genuinely care about our planet! Bold, insightful, and engaging are just a few of the words I’d use to describe the time you’ll spend with them. Thanks for putting out such a superb show Jared - keep up the great work!

Thank you

This world is, as Greta says, is on fire, and keeping up with all of it is exhausting! This podcast is a lovely respite of hope in a space so filled with horror. I truly appreciate the hopeful message- thanks
