Enjoyable and Incredibly Helpful for Climatetech Founders/People

I love this podcast!! Emily Kirsch is truly at the center of the climatetech revolution — as an investor, a connector, a culture carrier, a podcaster, and generally a leader — and so she gets the absolute best people and she knows what to ask them. I’m a climatetech founder myself (Greenwork, formerly at Station A) and I truly admire and learn from the people she interviews, every time.

It’s an added bonus that she is a great interviewer! She asks really thoughtful questions, and makes her guests feel comfortable to do most of the talking.

Can’t recommend enough!

A must-listen for learning about climate change

Emily’s podcasts are an indispensible guide to the often-complicated and fast-moving climate space. Her clear, honest interview style and top-tier guests make each episode a must-listen. Highly recommended.
