With nearly 70 episodes under our belt Planet Pod has had the privilege of hearing from over 150 inspirational guests.

We kick off 2020 with Planet Pod’s fourth episode in collaboration with the Grantham Institute which looks at the impact of travel and transport on climate change and our ability to achieve a net zero carbon economy by 2050.

We look at the intersection between environmental sciences, health behaviour, transportation, air quality and urban planning and consider what’s the right route to get us to a net zero future.
