    Free Wheelin’ with Hannah Elliott

    Free Wheelin’ with Hannah Elliott

    My guest today is Hannah Elliott, the automobile writer for Bloomberg Businessweek, based in America’s ultimate driving city, Los Angeles. These days, Hannah finds herself mostly writing about Electric Vehicles, or EVs as they say in the automobile industry. So we talk about that—particularly why they are all so ugly. We also look at what’s going to happen to the vintage car market once cities ban gas-powered automobiles.

    My guest today is Academy and Emmy Award-winning documentary producer and filmmaker Eva Orner. She talks with me about her latest movie, Burning, an unflinching look at the Black Summer, the epic Australian bushfires of 2019 and 2020 that torched 50 million acres of land, destroyed countless homes, and killed hundreds of thousands of animals, including 60,000 koalas.

    Here We Are with Oliver Jeffers

    Here We Are with Oliver Jeffers

    The wonderful Oliver Jeffers kicks off our first episode. Jeffers is a children’s author and illustrator, and I know you’ll enjoy hearing his thoughts as much as I did. But before we get to my conversation with him, I wanted to first share a little about myself so that you could understand a bit more about who I am and why I decided to create a new podcast, The Green Dream.
