The idea behind this show is pretty simple: A university campus is a destination for all kinds of interesting people, so why not invite some of these folks out to brunch, where we’ll have an informal conversation about their work, and then we’ll turn those brunches into a podcast?
It’s a tough job, but somebody has to do it.
Rachel Kyte is chief executive officer of Sustainable Energy for All (SEforALL), special representative of the UN secretary-general for Sustainable Energy for All, and co-chair of UN-Energy. Rachel visited Notre Dame in March to deliver the keynote address at ND Energy’s second annual research symposium.
Host Ted Fox started out by asking her about the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, and they went on to talk about the global movement for affordable, clean energy in the context of both developing countries and the United States. And while they were at it, Rachel shared an outstanding podcast recommendation.
Also, their conversation was recorded as a live show with an audience, so for this episode, anyway, we’re trading the clink of cutlery for a round of applause—which we can assure you was all for her.
