How to Save a Planet | Podcast

Have you greened your life as far as you can within your own circumstances? Are you looking for another podcast to listen to about how we can stop climate change that’s both fun and informative?

It may seem like an impossible brief but journalist Alex Blumberg and scientist and policy nerd Dr. Ayana Elizabeth Johnson have just started a new series that aims to do just that. Each episode they take a specific topic and look at a few real events in that area to learn what needs to be done and what are the pitfalls along the way. Finally, they give you practical suggestions for how you can make a positive change in that area.

For example the first episode followed the development of an offshore windfarm, the unlikely stumbling blocks and suggested you can attend council planning meetings in support. The production is American but already episode 2 was largely about the European Green Deal and the challenges we face are mostly similar.

Even if you don’t have time to enact any of the suggestions yourself its a really interesting listen to get a recent retrospective with a positive outlook when the daily news can seem a bit overwhelming. Maybe you can share your newfound knowledge and inspire your friends and family.
