Setting the scene in this first episode, Mark Spencer, founder of Climactic, and co-host Rich Bowden talk about the goals they have for their new podcast. The pair discuss the storytelling approach they will take to bringing listeners information and ideas on sustainable living. Mark and Rich also give an insight into the interviews they will be using to anchor the show as well as the importance they give to listener engagement to the success of the show.
Both Mark and Rich love talking to the people doing the hard yards on the ground, as much if not more so than the famous figures in the environmental movement, so if you’d like to tell your story, we’d be very happy to help.
