Philosophy of Shrinking Footprints (podcast episode 51)
We set out to make this the second of a series of episodes about shrinking our travel footprint, but the conversation ended up being a broader exploration of philosophical issues related to all kinds of footprint-shrinking actions. Erika and Dave are joined by recurring guest, Joshua Spodek, host of the This Sustainable Life podcast.
- The joy of not flying
- Generating a lot less waste
- Is the new iPhone really green?
- And plastic, plastic, plastic.
