Colin is a superhero!

Came across this podcast from a friend of a friend. I love the witty banter and Colin's humor - it makes for a comfortable listen.

I am not as environmentally conscious as these guys are, but listening to them weekly makes me more aware of my behaviors and I appreciate that.

Pretty cool recommendation for me. I may miss a week or two but I'm always sure to catch up every Sunday.

Keep going gentleman.

Fun and informative

The guys are putting out an environmental podcast that fills a niche of being both fun and informative. Unlike similar shows, they tackle real issues without being preachy and interview some really interesting people. The quality of production and content seems to be consistently improving. Highly recommended.
