Dave Gardner and Stephanie Gardner on sustainability
Society & CultureScience

Humankind has outgrown the planet, so we explore ways to recover from growth addiction. We dig into the more fascinating and hard-hitting aspects of public policy and the joy of living sustainably. It’s all about ending our culture’s love affair with “more,” which is not making us happier and is killing our planet. No half-hearted greenwashing here; we share the brutal and joyful truth! Co-host Dave Gardner directed the documentary GrowthBusters: Hooked on Growth, which Stanford Biologist Paul Ehrlich declared “could be the most important film ever made.” Learn more about the film at Co-host Stephanie Gardner earned a masters degree in environmental law and policy, and has expertise and experience in sustainable energy.

  • Excellent podcast covering the root cause of most of our current issues

    I’m so glad someone is tackling this sticky problem we’ve found ourselves in, and dealing with the root cause, not just trying to treat the symptoms. more

    I really enjoy this podcast, it's a great place to learn about a part of the climate change converstaion which is often hidden or left out of mainstream media conversations. The passion for sustainability of Dave and Erika and the depth of their research and conversation make it well worth your time.
