Pod of the Planet Ep. 12: Shopping for the Planet

Pod of the Planet · 12. Shopping for the planet

In our final episode of the year, Kyu Lee speaks with three of his colleagues: Phebe Pierson, Sarah Fecht and Charlotte Munson. They talk about Phebe’s interview with Barnard professor Sandra Goldmark and her new book, “Fixation: How to Have Stuff without Breaking the Planet” (24:27). Sarah recounts some of the top stories coming out of the State of the Planet blog in 2020 (13:10). And Charlotte, an undergraduate student at Columbia, gives us her all around perspective on what campus life has been like during the pandemic.

Thanks again to all our supporters, we appreciate all the wonderful feedback we’ve gotten. Have a happy, healthy holiday and see you in the new year!
