067: Become a person of value: John Lee Dumas, part 2

on July 25, 2018 in Podcast

John Lee Dumas took on one of the biggest and longest-term commitment of any guest. Six months in and he’s only half through it. He also inspired me back as much as any guest, which is probably related—not to think about things or talk, but to action. As with all environmental action, I expect I’ll enjoy it after the initial challenge. I like running as I always have, so trying[…] Keep reading →

on July 17, 2018 in Podcast

Listening to Balint’s third conversation now about six months after I’ve launched my podcast means a lot to me because I recorded this a long time before. It took a while to get through the editing process. It’s a big milestone for me although you can hear that the microphone back then wasn’t so good. Getting back to Balint, you can hear he planned and analyzed for a long time[…] Keep reading →

063: Technology won’t solve environmental issues and you know it (transcript)

on July 13, 2018 in Podcast

I want to talk about technology and how technology will not solve the environmental issues most people think it will, not if we act on it the way that we’re acting on it now and that you know it. I’ve been thinking lately back to before the main actions I took that led to this podcast and that led to me taking a more active role in the environment. I[…] Keep reading →
