  • Fascinating, listenable & salient

    Easily digestible and insightful coverage of the recent history of our global response to global calamity. Helps explain how we got here. Accords with insights from heterodox economists who have received much the same treatment as Meadows. I’ve listened to it twice already.

  • Fantastic! Should be required listening!

    I loved this mini series. I was aware of Dana Meadows & The Limits to Growth but not familiar with them. I found this so compelling, clearly articulated, well produced & easy to follow. It’s inspired me to learn more about Dana, LTG & Donut Economics & I’ve already been telling everyone I know to listen. Maybe if we all listened we’d be able to make the changes we do desperately need to.

Challenges the comprehension of leaders and questions our purpose on Earth. Thanks for putting this podcast together in such a direct and timely fashion. Let’s hope we, the listeners, can follow through.
