1. Adapting to a Changing Climate With Ethan Brown Dr. Ron Kaiser 33:39

Climate change is arguably one of the biggest and most important issues of our time. From floods to droughts, to hurricanes, and everything in between, we are already feeling the effects of human-induced warming of our planet. So what exactly is climate change? What contributes to it and what can we do to combat it? 

This episode’s guest, Ethan Brown, is the host of the popular podcast The Sweaty Penguin where he approaches the issue of climate change from a comedic perspective. Ethan’s goal with this podcast is to have meaningful, insightful, and engaging conversations around climate change without politicizing it. Every week, he covers a climate change issue and speaks to an expert in the field, providing valuable knowledge to listeners in a way that isn’t polarizing. 

In this episode, Ethan and I discuss the contributions to climate change, its effects, what we can do to slow it down, and so much more.
