This week continuing our health series, I interview Dr Lucas Tims, medical director of the Riordon Clinic, Kansas, USA.

It’s...

Andy Pace, Healthy Home Concierge and Founder of The Green Design Center, is back already. Our first show together was fantastic, looking at some of the disconnects between choosing building styles and materials and their impact on human health - seems to be we’re building for a very narrow success metric of energy saving while ignoring indoor humidity and mould growth potential.
