Once great, now has shady sponsors

Just finished listening to the episode on coral reefs and was very disappointed to learn that Dominion Energy (which relies on fossil fuels) and Toyota (which is siding with tRump as he guts fuel efficiency standards) are sponsoring the podcast. I thought The Guardian was a leader in informing the world on the climate crisis. With sponsors like these, how can we trust its content on climate?

B12 is NOT folic acid

The episode “Are alternative meats the key to a healthier life and planet” has an egregious error stated by presenter. She says “vitamin B12 is also known as folate or folic acid “ This is not true. Folate and Folic Acid are different forms of B9. Cobalamin is the alternative name for B12. This could have dangerous consequences because a listener might take folic acid thinking they are preventing B12 deficiency. You must correct this episode or remove it.
