Great coverage of all things environment

This show has great guests and thought-provoking conversations with them. The show touches on many different aspects of the environment and I appreciate all of the angles and topics covered. I recommend checking it out if you’re looking for something different in the environment/sustainability space.

I really wanted to like this show..

I really wanted to like this show because a show like this is always needed. After listening to two episodes, I’m pretty disappointed with it. They include a lot of anecdotal evidence. They claim to cover all view points but in the episodes I listened to (Clean coal and Ryan Zinke), I felt like they left out key information. They mainly interviewed one guy with one view point. Also, to discuss bears ears and not even mention the tribes who proposed it, seems very dismissive. The clean coal issue covered a lot about technology to remove CO2 but did not discuss the other aspects of coal that are definitely not clean like parts of the extraction process. It has some really insightful points but I don’t think it gives the whole picture. I won’t be recommending it.
