Green Tips: Environmental Podcast Recommendations

Green Tips | January 16, 2020

With so much happening in environmental news, it can be challenging to stay on top of it all. But there are ways to do so without carving more time out of your schedule. One way? Podcasts, which only require a listening ear and a device to play the audio. It’s easy to tune in while doing something else, such as commuting, exercising, cleaning, or cooking.

There is no shortage of environmental podcasts out there, covering topics like climate change, sustainable business, and conservation. In this week’s Green Tips, we recommend some of our favorites. Happy listening!

  • To learn about U.S. climate change legislation and political news, check out Parts Per Billion, produced by Bloomberg Environment. With episodes lasting 15 minutes or less, this podcast is a quick and easy way to stay updated on environmental policy.
  • For a business perspective on climate change and its potential economic impacts, listen to Climate Rising, a Harvard Business School podcast. Business and policy leaders join Harvard faculty to discuss the solutions that we can implement to reduce emissions and tackle climate change.
