Feeding 10 Billion
- Publisher: IVM Podcasts
- Total Episodes: 22
By the year 2050 we will have 10 billion people on our planet – a sixth of whom will be in India. If we want to feed all 10 billion of us in a sustainable, healthy and just way, we need to reimagine how we source our food. Feeding ourselves cannot come at the cost of global health, worsening greenhouse gas emissions, excessive land, water and resource use, zoonotic diseases, antibiotic resistance, and needless suffering. Last season, we brought you a ringside view of the next food revolution that is rethinking the future of protein. Companies like Memphis Meats, Impossible Foods, Beyond Meat and JUST Egg had a blockbuster year making meat, eggs, and other animal-sourced foods from plants, or cells, or other ingredients that are delicious and nutritious for us, and vastly better for the planet. The Covid-19 pandemic has only made the importance of protein diversification evident. If you want to be part of the future of food and work on solutions to some of the biggest problems of our time, join the Good Food Institute’s Varun Deshpande and Ramya Ramamurthy on Season 2 of Feeding 10 Billion

The Drawdown Agenda is an exciting new podcast series exploring the ground-breaking research behind the best-selling book Drawdown, a new and inspiring vision how we can reverse global warming by achieving “drawdown” – when atmospheric greenhouse gas concentrations peak and begin to decline. Every fortnight, we speak to key members of the Drawdown team, a broad coalition of researchers, scientists, policy makers, business leaders and activists who have mapped, measured, and modelled the 100 most important climate solutions that can help us reach “drawdown.” We explore the key carbon-reduction solutions across the seven sectors at the heart of Drawdown— food, women and girls, transport, materials, building and cities, and land use- as well as emerging solutions. We discuss how these solutions work in practice, explore the momentum for change, and look to the future as we learn how we can take collective action to achieve “drawdown.”

Groundwork: Climate Change & Culture
- Publisher: Groundwork
- Total Episodes: 2
It’s easy to feel overwhelmed by climate change. Climate change is not just about greenhouse gases, technology, policy, and renewable energy. Climate change is a relational problem rooted deep in our culture and the ways we see our world. It comes from our relationships with the ecosystems and people who make up our complex world. It comes from our relationships with ourselves as we navigate an increasingly fast-paced and consumeristic world. Groundwork is a podcast exploring culture’s role in climate change and how it relates to us as individual people.

Listen to Don’t Panic It’s Organic! Banish pesticides and chemical fertilizers from your garden. The Invisible Gardener is here to show you how to work with Mother Nature instead of against her. What are you putting in your soil? How are you dealing with garden pests and diseases? Conventional horticulture assaults the earth with pesticides and chemicals, sucking essential nutrients from the soil with each harvest. Organic gardening offers a healthier, more productive, and more sustainable alternative. andy Lopez, a.k.a. the Invisible Gardener, started his business in 1970 and through this show he will reveal how to work in partnership with your garden while consuming less energy and producing fewer greenhouse gases. Under Andy’s expert tutelage, you’ll discover – the importance of having ‘living’ soil natural tree care by understanding the Law of Cause and Effect how you can control bark beetles and other pests and diseases natural disease control by using a Refractometer to get Brix readings what Brix is and how you can use it for your garden the correct way to make use of compost and mulch, and why we make it in the first place natural pest control, the Greater the Stress, the Greater the Pest you will know what Brix is and how you can use it for your garden the correct way to make and use compost and mulch, and why we make it in the first place natural pest control: my motto is the Greater the Stress, the Greater the Pest organic lawn care and weed control natural spraying methods how to reduce your garden’s water needs what the role of Mycelium is and how to help it what rock dust is and how to use it Conventional horticulture still clings to the claim that organic and conventional growing methods yield the same results. Andy reveals the flaws in this argument, proving organic practices and heirloom seed use can actually increase harvests. Even if organic and conventional growing methods had the same results, which would you prefer: soil leached of nutrients by chemical overuse, or rich, natural loam cultivated by your own hands and Andy’s practical, proven methods? A real gardener knows the answer instinctively. Don’t Panic Go Organic – you’ll never regret it. The Invisible Gardener show will be a mix of andy’s gardening wisdom along with electronic music he writes himself. He is also an environmentalist and his shows reflect this. Listen to him live on BBS Radio every Sat Mornings 1 to 1:55 pm pst

Happy Earth Day
- Publisher: Heena Singh
- Total Episodes: 5
Out of sight, out of mind. We don’t see the greenhouse gas emissions from livestock farming when we bite into a hamburger. We don’t see the groundwater leaching from landfills after the garbage truck turns the corner. We don’t see a planet suffering from human exploitation —rather a convenient resource, ready to give and be acknowledged once every 365 days. The Happy Earth Day podcast offers an alternative way of understanding the consequences of our everyday actions via a series of interview from around the world. It serves to not only educate but also challenge us to continue these conversations outside of the show with others in our community. Season 1 is all about the ways we connect to our planet whether it’s through technology, science, policy, music, religious faith, culture, food, history, etc. and seeing the ways in which these perspectives develop in different regions of the world. I hope these stories inspire you to cultivate your own connection with the natural world and bring change to your communities.
