Regular listeners heard me on the Carbon Sessions podcast, by the community created by podcast guest Seth Godin that created the bestselling book The Carbon Almanac. You can tell that one host of the Carbon Sessions, Brian, had listened to This Sustainable Life.

Neither of us could have predicted that he’d have the chance to practice it in a later Carbon Sessions recording, impromptu. Here is that episode.
