Recommended PodCasts - Learning

I really enjoy and draw inspiration from the following podcasts. Similar to a great book, spoken words/stories mean different things to different people. Many of these podcasts are contestations with authors, it is fascinating to get ‘behind the scenes’ access to their thought processes :-) The theme of these podcasts center around human/landscape interactions – Environment, Technology and Civilizations. Working to build sustainable relationships between each other and our landscapes :-)
