I am deeply grateful to the TEDxWaltham team for inviting me and hosting the event, October 5, 2019.
Here’s the blurb:
Josh shares his remarkable, radical, personal journey to more sustainable living — away from a standard American diet (and life) to his vegan, nearly package-free diet and away from a jet-setting lifestyle to not flying for 4.5 years and counting — and his profound discovery of a common misconception about acting on environmental values that can help each help each of us live more sustainably and enjoy it.
Josh has challenged himself to live a sustainable life- he takes 16 months to produce one load of garbage, and hasn’t flown (by choice) since March 2016. He blogs daily at joshuaspodek.com.
You can read the secret backstory in Victory from the jaws of defeat: I froze two-thirds through my TEDx talk.
