Rico Verde

On this inaugural podcast we share three topics:
1. Can a better understanding of human behavior save the planet?
The global issues associated with our environmental problems are as big as the planet. But the real issues are in our heads.
2. We need a new story with new heroes — like you.

3. Why are environmental issues so difficult to talk about?
Surveys show that most Americans care deeply about environmental issues, but don't often have the opportunity to discuss it. Why?
