Awesome Long Format Interviews with Experts

Really engaging interviews across the whole range of people supporting nuclear energy, medicine, etc. Very engaging interviews that thoroughly explain technical topics and take the concepts down to understandable levels, but still retain technical rigor. The optimism about the future gives me some hope for humanity!

Sophisticated In-Depth Energy Discussions

Highly recommended for those committed to combating climate change to protect our planets living systems. Brett Kugelmass brings an intelligence and can-do attitude which is sorely needed in the climate-change community. This library of in-depth technical interviews is a fantastic resource, and will be a valuable archive of this moment in (hopefully) revolutionizing our energy systems. No happy-talking circle-jerks who undermine real progress for personal edification and profit here; this podcast brings an adult voice to the table. Join the effort to make real progress in decarbonization.
