I’m obsessed with podcasts. They are the perfect distraction from tedious tasks like the morning rush hour commute on the tube.
So I thought I’d recommend a few podcasts relating to the the work we do here at bio-bean, the environment, and sustainability.
The Circulate Podcast
Made by the team at the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, these guys are the experts on the Circular Economy and can always come up with fascinating insights and examples.
Episode: Cities as flows in the Circular Economy
edie’s Sustainable Business Covered
edie is one of the biggest sustainability news sites out there so they’re able to get some big names on their podcast.
Episode: Britain’s great green policy progressives – featuring Sadiq Khan and ClientEarth CEO, James Thornton
Their silliness might get slightly on your nerves but if you like that sort of thing they can be a laugh. ‘Inhofe of the Week’ is a great feature, inspired by the ridiculous US Senator.
Episode: Babies – featuring Business Green Editor-in-Chief, James Murray.
These guys are brilliant at constructing a compelling narrative and have some of the best sound design in the business.
These podcasts are fantastically well researched and occasionally feature climate/sustainability topics.
BBC Analysis – How did we save the Ozone Layer?
The Inquiry – Can we eat our way out of climate change?
The Documentary – Africa’s Ivory Dilemma
New Economics Foundation’s Weekly Economics Podcast
From one of the most interesting think tanks in the UK at the moment, this episode is part of their series written in response to the Brexit vote.
Episode: Really take control: Environment
Well, that’s my list. Happy listening, and leave a comment if you’ve come across any others.
