Extremely informative and essential listening, but depressing and hopeless
I have listened to dozens of episodes of this podcast now and each one has been very informative, enlightening and taught me what can be done about climate change. The sister podcast, “The Drawdown Agenda”, is also excellent and I highly recommend that too. The first step to any solution must be knowledge, which this podcast provides. However, the host Fergal usually conveys a perspective that we are doomed, it is too late, that there is no hope - which I think is doing a lot of harm. As someone who cares deeply about the planet, I can understand this feeling of desperation. But as many of Fergal’s podcast guests have insisted throughout the various episodes, we have to come at this with a different narrative if we are to influence widespread action. It has to be a message of hope. If people believe that it is a hopeless and lost cause, they will not take action. I love the information I receive from this podcast, but sometimes I have to stop listening as his perspective and approach can be a bit too depressing.

I enjoy the content of this podcast but hearing heavy breathing is too distracting and just annoying.
