Sustainability Office Podcast

Welcome to the homepage for our office podcast!

People, Profit, and Planet: A Sustainability Podcast is available on Spotify (free to listen) and Anchor. They are 15-20 minutes long, the perfect size for a Link commute. The "Three Ps" are the pillars of sustainability -- Insure equitable treatment for all people, protect the planet, and make sure doing so can turn a profit. As a campus podcast, we focus on how broad sustainability issues can impact your time here at CSB/SJU, from food waste in the cafeterias to the electricity powering your trendy dorm room LED strips. Below are summaries of our episodes, along with supplemental information and the sources we used.

Go check out some of our favorite podcasts!

  • How To Save A Planet on Spotify is one of Betsy's favorites! "Join us, journalist Alex Bloomberg and policy nerd Dr. Ayana Elizabeth Johnson, as we scour the earth for solutions, talk to people who are making a difference, ask hard questions, crack dumb jokes and -- episode by episode-- figure out how to build the future we want."
  • Drilled: Do you like your true crime podcasts with a bit of climate noir? Amy Westervelt takes you to all the dirtiest, oiliest legal cases on earth.
