Informative, Inspiring, Fun

With each episode, Jonah takes a huge, confusing and intimidating topic and turns it into something inspiring and motivating. After listening to each episode of ReVolt, I am not only inspired to continue educating myself on the topic at hand, I am motivated to take action towards my own energy freedom and helping others achieve the same thing. Thank you for the wealth of information and inspiration Jonah!
