and a few to keep you up to date on environmental policy and news…

Living on Earth: In partnership with NPR, Living on Earth provides up to date news and information on the world’s changing environment, ecology, and human health.

Sustainababble: A weekly podcast about the environment, for and by the confused. Hosts Ol and Dave sift through the most egregious eco-guff out there to get a little bit closer to enlightenment. They may fail but the comedic reprieve is much appreciated!

Sustainable World Radio: News and commentary covering ecology, Permaculture, organic gardening, sustainability, natural building, regenerative farming and ethnobotany. They interview experts from around the globe; teachers, designers, environmentalists and earth activists who learn from and work with Nature.

  1. Sustainababble is my absolute favorite! When I listen at work I end up laughing hysterically at my desk though. I also really love Colleen Patrick-Goudreau’s Food For Thought which is focused on veganism, but has a new running series about going zero waste. Also she has many, many episodes talking about the environmental impact of animal agriculture.


      • Their episodes tend to focus on the news of the day or stem from it at least so I generally want to listen to whatever the most recent. They did an episode recently called Hygiene which I could not stop giggling over (but of course that’s the case with bathroom discussions). I’m not a fan of their interviews- their guests tend to be more serious and detract from their banter.
