by Yurie Kim
Podcasts just got a whole lot greener. If you’re like us and can’t get enough of the sustainability buzz, but can’t seem to find the time or energy to weed through all the information out there, these podcasts may be your answer.  If you haven’t discovered podcasts yet, they are audio segments that can be found on the Podcast App of your iPhone or online, and the best part? They’re almost always free to listen to! Here are our picks for the best current sustainability related podcasts worth tantalizing your ears: 1) The Minimalists Podcast If you’re familiar with the Netflix documentary, Minimalism, then you are no stranger to the names Joshua Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus.  In 2010, the duo began their journey to live a minimalist lifestyle, teaching themselves to “live meaningful lives with less stuff”.  The idea of living on less inherently relates to leaving a lighter footprint on our planet, which the two touch on throughout the series in their conversational style format that’s both easy and fun to listen to.

The podcast is focused around interviews with some of today’s most influential environmental activists, entrepreneurs, scientists, and policy makers who discuss their challenges, mindset, and tips for making even the smallest positive impact on the environment.
