Hey folks!My friend Lou was kind enough to chat with me a few months back from the other side of the world. This was recorded in January, 2020 before quarantine. The fires had been raging in Australia for months and it was a very fresh topic. The topic is still relevant today as fires have been raging across the western United States for several weeks now.Listen in to learn about what it was like to grow up in Australia, and how locals like Lou feel about the fires.Enjoy and thanks again Lou!-DanaSupport the show (
Hey Friends!In this episode I have a chat with a friend of mine, Dave Halbert. Dave was born in Ohio but moved to Massachusetts when his mother took a job with the EPA. He has lived in East Boston for years since graduating from college. Dave is actively involved in local politics and has some fantastic insight into environmental issues and related injustices around Boston. Being an Eagle Scout himself, Dave has a personal connection to promoting and preserving a healthy planet. Here's a quote from the episode where Dave is talking about the realities of an increase in frequency and severity of storms around the city due to climate change:"It's kind of a funny joke when it's one person kayaking down the street after a storm. It's a whole lot less funny when it's everybody kayaking down the street, and the storms are every month. On top of the that; these people aren't just kayaking for fun, they're trying to save their homes"Give it a listen! -DanaUseful links: the show (
