    SLP 156 The Plan for 2019

    SLP 156 The Plan for 2019

    Marianne takes a look at where we have been and where we are going.

    Health, life circumstances and more slowed down the regular schedule a bit in 2018.

    The promise for 2019 is to publish at least one podcast a month - but it might be a lot more than that.

    The formats will vary but the goal will always be to bring you interesting and useful information.

The Path to Sustainable Living

Hit or Miss

I really wanted to like this podcast, but the hosts aren’t always good. The topics are great, but if I can’t enjoy listening to the host, than why bother? Some of the hosts seem really unprepared and inarticulate, as if they created the podcast on a whim. May come back and cherry pick the episodes, if I don’t find anything better.

Such a fun listen!

Marianne is so much fun to listen to and I like how she tends to show the other side of sustainable living. Many times it's overly glorified, but Marianne provides a nice balanced approach to each episode!
