Excellent High Level Policy Tutorial

Great podcast for the generalist who is interested in becoming sufficiently informed to affect positive policy change. Tom and Jeff keep it as cool, casual and good humored as the topic permits. I highly recommend to all advocates and politicians interested in climate policy!
