  • Great show

    I love this show so much. I like to listen to episodes in order, so I’ve just gotten to the 2015 episodes and it amazes me to listen and remember stories that I have forgotten that the world had to deal with 7 years ago. I love the hosts and how the stories always sound like conversations and are full of interviews.

  • A different perspective

    The ‘Costing the Earth’ team never fail to present a well researched and balanced window onto the environmental issues of the day and importantly, how they might shape our future. Accessible, informative and relevant. This is one of my ‘go to’ environmental podcasts, more please!

  • More BBC propaganda

    Restarted listening to podcasts and with excitement thought I would tune into Costing the Earth again after a few gap years. Within minutes I realised this was just another piece of anti-Brexit rhetoric and anti- British propaganda from the BBC. Sorry, turned off. Roll on the day when the licence fee is cancelled.
