    Robert's flying solo in his studio this week and has a great time on his lonesome discussing some emerging news.

Plus, there's micro rants about a recent Dispatches episode in there for good measure and more.

Fun and Informative

I like shows like this that focus on the progress we’re making in transitioning to a cleaner, greener future. It’s refreshing and Robert’s English wit and anecdotes are charming and fun. His huge array of guests are often fascinating to listen to as they lay out the history, science, and goals of renewable energy.

I know most people follow the Fully Charged youtube channel for their EV coverage, but I always preferred the bigger picture stuff like grid development or how renewables are overtaking fossil fuels. Thankfully this show focuses on the latter and in great detail. Highly recommended if you want to feel hopeful for the future while also learning something.
