We make the connections between overpopulation and the many vexing issues of the day. We also promote voluntarily choosing smaller families to achieve a sustainable population and create a more resilient future. Overpopulation is the main driver of resource depletion, dire poverty, climate change, and species extinction. The good news: overpopulation is solvable humanely through dramatically reducing birthrates. Join host Dave Gardner and the World Population Balance staff, along with occasional guest experts as we shine a little light on this often misunderstood subject.

The Inconvenient Truth

This is a vitally important podcast. The knowledge imparted in it is of the highest quality. There are very informative guests. The host knows all about the subject, gives important information and asks significant questions of the guests. This is the ultimate problem for the world. Everyone should become well informed about it. This podcast is the best way I've found to do so.

Wonderful podcast

This is the most important topic that humanity should be talking about but it is rarely discussed. So many good points on this topic and excellent rounded view of the problem.

Hopelessful Situation

This is a great podcast, very enlightening. Of all environmental-related programming, this show gets to the core issue underlying all others.
We all could burn coal, drive SUVs, eat filet mignon and live in Mc Mansions sustainably if their were a fraction of the people and have no effect on climate, etc... Instead, we are barreling headlong into an enormous catastrophe.
Overpopulation, topsoil erosion, climate change, overfishing, nuclear proliferation are all going to collide.
