This week, we tell a story that starts differently from most of our episodes. Instead of being a renowned athlete, from an early age, he was a decent high school athlete, then joined the military, as a firefighter, where he did tours in Iraq. He also began fighting. His skills were just right for the burgeoning business of MMA, and he landed a spot…

We live in a world of political extremes, with the far right and far left denigrating each other on a regular basis. But could the future lie with politicians who appeal to everyone else? Our guest on this show says yes. Former CIA agent and Republican congressman Will Hurd of San Antonio won three terms representing Texas’s 23rd district. He was t…
 
This week, we explore the life of an unlikely World Series hero, who took all that good will, and flushed it directly down the toilet. A love of booze & amphetamines led to a tough transition to a life, after baseball. He never quite adjusted. A very public divorce & stalking arrest tarnished his image, but that pales in comparison to the time that…
 
In the international carbon offset market, the average price of removing one tonne of CO2 from the atmosphere is still below $15 USD, nowhere near enough to cover the costs of carbon capture and storage (CCS). As Dr. Sheila Olmstead (University of Texas, Austin) explained in a recent Climate Now podcast episode, this is why CCS is one of the few cl…

This week, we check into a man, who worked his way onto an NFL roster, almost exclusively on the back of his ability to use his body, with reckless abandon, to take down, and preferably hurt, opposing players. Some cracks began to appear, while still playing. He attacked a reporter, and fought with coaches & teammates. But once he retired, the full…
 
Each year, we produce about 30 billion tonnes of concrete globally. That’s nearly 10,000 pounds, or more than 2 entire cars-worth of concrete, per person, per year. We produce enough steel to build more than 2700 Empire State Buildings annually. We produce more than 100 pounds of plastic per person, each year. And with all of this material producti…
 
All too often people in public life talk past each other and assume that all Americans are rigid Republicans or determined Democrats. So what happens when we actually listen and give voters the respect and space they need to explain how their true opinions? On guns, abortion, government spending and even partisan politics, most people may not be ne…

This week, we look into the life of a man, was in trouble since middle school, and kept a steady pace of police interaction, through pretty much his whole life, so far. He came from bad circumstances, being called "crusty" as a kid, but used basketball to overcome that situation, making himself an extremely wealthy man, in the process. All of that,…
 
Are we underestimating the potential of increased efficiency? It wouldn’t be the first time. In 2021, the International Energy Agency and the U.S. Energy Information Administration forecasted a 50% increase in global energy demand by 2050. Such forecasts have echoes of the 1970’s, when – in the middle of a global energy crisis – forecasters were an…

“Inertia is a hell of a thing. Inertia is there, and there is very little motivation for an incumbent to change course. So you have to have that disruption from the outside. The same thing with financial services.” - Marilyn Waite, Climate Finance Fund In the 2019/2020 fiscal year, the global climate finance sector reached a record 632 billion US d…
 
This week, we check out the life of the man who inspired Sylvester Stallone to write the Rocky character. He came from the streets, liking a barroom brawl even more than a fight in the ring. In boxing, he was known mainly for two things, being the bloodiest fighter, maybe in boxing history, and getting a shot, out of nowhere, to fight Muhammad Ali,…
 
It's going to be a busy week in theatre! We talk with Kevin Lawler, Artistic and Administrative Coordinator of the Great Plains Theatre Commons New Play Conference, which begins Sunday, May 30th and runs every day until June 4th, 2022.

Every day on social media and cable TV, in newspapers and magazines, we're told that we live in a red-versus-blue world of rigid divides. Our podcast guest, Tony Woodlief, begs to differ. "In reality, most people fall somewhere in the middle, or else have a complex blend of views from both sides of the aisle, Tony tells us. His new book "I, Citizen…
 
This week, we head under the mask, with a hockey goalie, who is a perfectionist, a hall of famer, and a huge drunk, who causes problems at hotels, and seems very willing to fight police officers. He was a hero, wherever he played, and that seems to be part of the problem, because even judges would tell him what a hero he was, while they were senten…
 
Lawrence Livermore National Lab, Princeton University, and the IPCC have all published proposed climate mitigation pathways: strategies for economically reaching net-zero emissions by mid-century for California, the U.S., and the world, respectively.

“So, what then is life about? To what — to whom — will we entrust our heart? There are plenty of suitors, but only one worthy spouse. For, as we’ll find, a human life is a weighty thing, and some goals simply can’t bear the burden of our whole heart’s love.” If there's one thing I crave in all my decision-making, it's confidence. If I knew for sure…

This week, we look at a man who was once the most famous human being, on the planet Earth. He was a hero of his country, and many others, as well.

Cocaine, ladies of the night, and plenty of mafioso friends led him down …
 
For years we’ve been hearing that the clean energy transition is going to be expensive.

This week, we check in with a man who came from an athletic family, and followed in his father's footsteps, by going to dad's alma mater. All seemed set for a great career, and a good relationship with the community. The football didn't pan out quite like he thought, but the off the field violence does. Terrifying accounts of a very large, very dru…
 
Among the top importers of Russian oil are the EU, Germany, Italy, The Netherlands, and France. The EU accounted for 71% of oil imports from Russia 2 months after the war in Ukraine began.

This week, we race into disaster, with an Englishman, who went from managing a car dealership, to running his own champion race team.

Just when you thought he learned hi…

If the international shipping sector were a country, it would be the sixth largest CO2 emitting nation in the world. Every year, 11 billion tons of goods - about 80% of all the goods we use or consume - reach us by ship, emitting nearly a billion tons of CO2 into the atmosphere in the process. And, about 40% of those goods - nearly 4.5 billion tons…

We all judge others on how they sound: their accent, their pronunciation, their use of slang.

In this episode we speak with Jessica Mendoza and Jingnan Peng of t…

Soil - that mixture of degraded bedrock, decomposing organic matter, and microorganisms, that nourishes the root systems of plants and trees - already has a soil carbon bank 4x that of vegetation. And, by changing how we manage our soils, it is possible to increase their capacity for trapping CO2 in the form of organic carbonand enhance the agricul…
 
Last but definitely not least, Charles James Adams talks to the Platte River Bard. From the era that Sheri and Chris grew up in, it was always a joke that five people make an official party, but in this case, if you add Mr. Adams and his wonderful energy and sense of humor, that makes five, so we were an official party! And speaking of party, Mr. A…
