“A weekly podcast about the environment, for and by the confused.”

Your hosts Ol and Dave are supposed to be experts in how to save the planet. But why’s everything got to be so confusing? Each week they try to get a little bit closer to enlightenment. They may fail.

They sift through the most egregious eco-guff out there, exposing the real eco villians vs the hapless incompetents. It’s topical, funny and hopefully more than a little cathartic.
