My Favorite Podcast...BY FAR!!!!

By Nick Seres - May 18 2020

Scott and Jay do an amazing job describing sustainability to those of us that don't fully understand it or have the time to do all the research ourselves. They have the research to back up everything they talk about and they do it in a way that anyone, no matter their walk of life will be able to comprehend and relate to it somehow in their lives. Their humor and bad jokes make me smile and laugh every episode. You couldn't find a better duo than these two. Since COVID-19, I have been able to set aside the time to dig into my own sustainability habits and listening to Scott and Jay has been eye opening and insightful. I will definitely be a listener for life and will be reccommending Sustainability Defined to anyone and everyone I meet. In the words of Scott Breen, "You all stay sustainable out there!"

Love this podcast!

Rank #2: Ep 22: Circular Economy with Jennifer Gerholdt (U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation) and Angela Nahikian (Steelcase)

Podcast cover
Read more

In this episode, we talk with two women shaping the future of the circular economy. What is the circular economy? Well, it's this little business opportunity that could generate $4.5 trillion (that's with a "t") of additional economic output by 2030. The circular economy is about designing out waste--using fewer inputs on the front end, extending lifecycles of products, and refurbishing products or re-using inputs at the end of a product's useful life. Misfit Juicery (episode #6) and The Renewal Workshop (episode #18) are great examples of companies in the circular economy since they are creating value out of resources that would otherwise go to the landfill. We hope you enjoy the examples and insights from our guests and the bad circle puns from us. 

Want to be on the show? As we say in the outro, those who tag us on facebook (@sustainabilitydefined) or twitter (@sustaindefined) and share the show by tagging five or more people in that post, Jay and/or I will chat with you on skype and put you on the end of the show explaining why you care about sustainability (or to tell a bad joke).

Rank #7: Hiatus Ep #3: Big Data and Sustainability with Kate Brandt (Google)

Podcast cover
Read more

Dearest Sustainability Defined family, we are taking a short hiatus. This is the third in a brief series of episodes where we'll give a short update on what we're up to outside of the podcast and then replay an oldie but goodie in its entirety.

For this month's hiatus, we're revisiting our episode on Big Data & Sustainability. It's one of our most downloaded episodes and features an interview with Kate Brandt, Google's Sustainability Officer. Since this episode originally aired in October of 2017, Kate's continued to push the needle in sustainable tech and spotlight the positive impacts big data can bring to sustainability. She also recently hosted a TED Talk where she drew interesting parallels between Google's Big Data work and the concept of a circular economy. Plus, we mention in the episode Google's effort to map the air pollution in every city in the world, and you can read about the latest on it in a June 2019 blog post here: https://www.blog.google/products/maps/working-map-air-everywhere-and-help-beatairpollution/?

Bonus! Stick around for content from Sustainable Brands '19 in Detroit where Scott interviewed Dimitar Vlahov, Director of Knowledge & Insights at Sustainable Brands. They discuss the highlights from the conference, how listeners can engage with Sustainable Brands, and Dimitar's favorite Bulgarian food.

We're excited to come back recharged with new content and bad jokes this summer. In the meantime, you can still reach us any time at hosts@sustainabilitydefined.com with your feedback, ideas for shows post-hiatus, and (obviously) bad jokes.

You probably have some awesome retro clothes in your closet because you want to get as much use out of your clothes as you can. We're with you, but unfortunately, in the USA, 80 pounds of apparel per American per year ends up in the landfill. Luckily, there is a superhero to the rescue. Our guest this episode, Jeff Denby, is the co-founder of a business called The Renewal Workshop that is going to take this linear model and make it circular. It partners with apparel brands to take returned and damaged clothing, clean it and repair it at a factory in Oregon, and then resell it. No matter the state the clothes are in, when they are sent to The Renewal Workshop, there is a no landfill guarantee. After this episode, we guarantee that you'll never look at clothes the same way again.

What is agroecology, you ask? Agroecology is a style of farming that makes the best use of nature's goods and services without inflicting any harm on earth's resources. Often confused with afroecology (the practice of farming with disco-style hair), it presents an exciting yet surprisingly familiar way that our food production system can reorganize itself more sustainably.

Biomimicry is a burgeoning field that involves finding sustainable solutions to certain challenges by emulating nature’s time-tested patterns and strategies. Innovators have found solutions to real-world problems through the study of the shape of a bird's beak, the hide of an armadillo, and the fins of a humpback whale.

Admittedly, we're not experts on conservative thought, but we do our darndest to give a fair portrait of conservatism and explain why many of today's conservatives don't seem willing to take action on climate change. After this episode, we guarantee you'll better understand conservatism and what climate change solutions align with conservative principles. Enjoy!
