572: Geoff Colvin, part 2: Are we losing humanity when we lose touch with nature?
Geoff’s story of his commitment to act on his childhood memories of playing along the Missouri River in South Dakota starts off interesting, then turns exciting, thrilling, and ultimately life-changing. One of the things we most fear happened to him and he loved it.
I think our conversation then grew more interesting. He’s a storyteller and educator. He learned from the experience beyond what reading a book or reading a graph on carbon levels could reveal. We explored what nature brings to us, and what its absence deprives us of.
Geoff is an experienced and brilliant thinker and speaker. He explores and shares the interplay between nature and humanity, its loss, and what that loss means to us.
This episode will make you think. I bet it will make you want to go outside too.
