74. Grass-Type Pokemon and the Plants that Inspired Them w/ Ellen Weatherford
The Pokemon franchise has a long history of coming up with some really ~wild~ grass-type creatures. With the recent release of Pokemon Legends: Arceus, this is the perfect time to dive into some of their designs and origins. Luckily, my dear friend Ellen Weatherford is an animal and Pokemon aficionado and was kind enough to come chat with me! Ellen is the host of the wildly popular Just the Zoo of Us podcast and one of my absolute favorite humans. This episode is a pretty long one, and you're welcome for that. Give it a listen and be sure to check out Just the Zoo of Us at the links below!
I'm also super excited to announce that today, March 1, 2022, is the beginning of a rad partnership with Forest Proud. Forest Proud is a non-profit organization supporting forest-based climate solutions. Their mission is to build awareness and support for keeping forests as forests to fight climate change. Forest Proud believes:
- Forests provide powerful climate solutions.
- Forest management is how we deliver those solutions.
- Forest markets and products are how we sustain those solutions.
