Show Notes

The Good News this week is the there are folks in the U.S. trying to fix their democratic system… by breaking it, kind of. Canadian Conservatives are grouchy about protests, as is the Liberal Party. Honestly, no one is happy in Canada at the moment. We’re sorry.

Show Notes

This week we have a special guest and talk about a cool international non-profit that a few of the Forest Friends are involved with! We had the weird issue near the end with some random skipping of a second or so at a time and also we sit on leather couches while recording so sorry for the shifting around noises.

A newly developed fibre that behaves like the best parts of metal and elastics, robotic limbs that don’t require brain implants, and the threat of a dolphin uprising. Oh dear.

Editor’s Note: there appear to have been a few issues with the recording starting in the final quarter of the episode, so there are some weird skips and jumps. Sorry.
