Topics surrounding ethical and sustainable living can be pretty intense at times, which is why Sustainababble is a must-listen for anyone navigating the lifestyle.

Hosts Ol and Dave explore confusing topics around the environment and sustainability, hoping to get a little closer to understanding. Some previous topics include solar power, organic farming and periods. There are over 116 episodes out there, and they’re a great listen on days where you want to consume something a little lighter.

Each episode is hosted by Fergal Byrne, a researcher and writer with over 20 years experience in the sector, who interviews a variety of leading sustainability thinkers. The episodes can be an intense listen, and they are quite research-heavy, but they offer some amazing insight into sustainability topics. There are currently 55 episodes available; the latest few looking at sustainable cities and sustainable agriculture.
