A Society, Culture and News podcast featuring Dave Gardner
 1 person rated this podcast
From movies and entertainment to lifestyle, science and politics, Grace and Dave dig into the more fascinating aspects of sustainable living. It’s all about ending our culture’s love affair with “more,” which is not making us happier and is killing our planet. No half-hearted greenwashing here; we share the brutal and joyful truth! Dave directed the documentary GrowthBusters: Hooked on Growth, which Stanford Biologist Paul Ehrlich declared “could be the most important film ever made.” Grace Stark graduated from Towson with a degree in environmental policy.
