    Introducing How to Save a Planet

    Does climate change freak you out? Want to know what we, collectively, can do about it? Us too. How to Save a Planet is a podcast that asks the big questions: what do we need to do to solve the climate crisis, and how do we get it done?
    Join us, journalist Alex Blumberg and scientist and policy nerd Dr. Ayana Elizabeth Johnson, as we scour the Earth for solutions, talk to people who are making a difference, ask hard questions, crack dumb jokes and — episode by episode — figure out how to build the future we want.

    Alex Talks to Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley

    Alex Talks to Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley

    Normally, being the mayor of Dayton, Ohio, means paying attention to everyday issues, from garbage pickups to municipal budgets. But in the early morning hours of August 4, 2019, a gunman opened fire at a downtown bar in the city, and Nan Whaley’s role as mayor immediately shifted. She found herself thrust into the national spotlight as all eyes turned to Dayton. And it wasn't long before she was face-to-face with President Donald Trump.

    Alex Talks to Cycling Whistleblower Jonathan Vaughters

    Alex Talks to Cycling Whistleblower Jonathan Vaughters

    Jonathan Vaughters was a member of the famed USPS pro cycling team when his teammate Lance Armstrong won the first of a record-breaking seven straight Tours de France. While fans were awed and inspired by the victories, Jonathan knew there was something else fueling those wins: performance enhancing drugs — something the entire team was using, including himself. The deception weighed heavy on his conscience, and Jonathan found himself at a crossroads: live with the lie or come clean and become a traitor to his friends, colleagues, and the most powerful man in cycling, Lance Armstrong.

    Alex Talks to Country Songwriter Shane McAnally

    Ever since he was young, Shane McAnally knew he wanted to be a country music star. But as a gay man, he didn’t fit the Nashville mold, and so he hid his true identity for years as he struggled to break through. Little did he know that coming out would prove the key to his success. 
    We created a playlist of Shane McAnally hits, from artists like Kenny Chesney and Kacey Musgraves. You can find it at https://open.spotify.com/playlist/0ixldv7V7QUegFLYo3k5RN?si=Slqyo5ypQO6LiRydT-PbTQ

Inside View

I feel like super man with ex ray powers. The view is nice here. The Who’s who of the world.

I’m going to crush it if awkward and passive is the scale of success.

I can’t do the wife. Neg neg neg.
“ Is that a million”?

although I could be biased by loneliness, so there is that.

Fallen Acolyte

A decent podcast with a sinister underpinning. Blumberg always spoke so highly of his mentor Ira Glass and how he taught him to make great radio.
Seems like Alex just wants to make money. Hence gimlet has become the infomercial podcast network. They’re rich, and their only decent podcast self destructed. The rest is “sponsored content “ ( Read infomercial ). So good for you Bloomberg, your a multimillionaire. Here’s a pitch, staff brings in their soiled underwear. Hook up with a large detergent company for a show. Then post before and after pictures of said garments.
Perfect show for this companies current state. Meanwhile, Ira Glass is still turning out great INDEPENDENT radio. Gimlet, not so much.
There’s a lesson here somewhere
