Awesome Learning Resource!
Awesome content. I really appreciate the broad range of guests you interview. I am learning so much, and your podcast is exactly what I wanted to find when searching for a podcast to learn about water conservation. I am attempting to develop desperately needed affordable housing for the service workers / working class in our highly water sensitive mountain community. To my astonishment, the rules around water use are arcane, allowing wholesale waste, while at the same time restricting thoughtful development. I am trying to break that norm by presenting a highly water efficient (grey water re-use, rain water catchment, metering, common meal prep etc.)
I would love to hear more content about how developers employ cost effective conservation techniques into their buildings thereby helping to overcome water scarcity and creating housing suitable for our 21st century water situation.
Technical suggestion - turn up the volume on the guest mic. They are hard to hear sometimes at full volume and your mic is much louder.
Thanks for everything you’re doing to help us learn what we should be doing!
Our town council race has water as the top issue ( medium sized desert town) and this podcast will be informing our new council members on everything from reuse to cybersecurity.
A must-have for anyone who uses water (so everyone)
