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.
