IbN # 14 - Jesse Jones & Chris Roy

Show Notes

"When you are out walking around just pick up trash whether you are with your friends or..if a stranger sees you. When I see someone picking up a piece of trash it makes me so happy" - Jesse Jones

Here is the list of all the topics that were suggested for the podcast. I will do my best to look into these topics in the future and hopefully bring some interesting episodes covering the different areas. 

Can I actually make a difference in the fight against climate change and are electric cars really as good as they seem?

This is the second and last part of this podcast special where I have invited Jesse Jones and Chris Roy to help me go through some of the interesting topics that were suggested for the podcast by guests at our recent launch event. 

The topics span widely within environmental and climate related issues and I am so intrigued by the ideas and thoughts that appears when asked what topics we think are interesting and important. You can read the full list of ideas for future episode topics down in the shownote section. To listen and read about the first section of this interview go to episode 13.

-Part 2-

In the first part of this special in episode 13 we were discussing the advice written down on the "Pay it forward" wall at the launch event. 

In this second leg of the special we are discussing the proposed future topic ideas shared in the envelopes at the launch event.
