Fossil fuels, intensive farming, deforestation, waste disposal, overconsumption, pollution, the 6th mass extinction, climate change is all on everyone’s mind. But what can we do? How do we make a difference? What do we have to change now? The How to Be Good podcast asks these questions. Join Gareth and Anca as we speak to specialists, scientists, activists, providers and more, and ask what we can do in our everyday lives to make a difference and debunk many of the myths and misinformation.
