Exploring books for a better world.

This podcast series explores books with ideas for positive social and environmental change. Each month we feature a book and an interview its author. The interviews give an insight on what’s behind the book, why it matters, as well as what’s in it, the ideas, challenges and discoveries.

Episodes are published on the first Wednesday of every month.
