Find out more about Jon Moore’s Podcast Essentials Webinar on 12 March here.

Welcome to Season 3, episode 6 of the season dedicated to wholefoods in the marketplace. This week, your co-hosts Jon Moore and Rich Bowden take off on a bit of a tangent from the usual real food theme by interviewing Mark Spencer — founder of the soon-to-be-released environmentally-themed podcast Climactic (5 June 2018).

In the show Jon and I ask Mark what motivated him to start Climactic, what he aims to achieve, what topics he will cover as well as how he intends to reach his target audience — regular people like you and I.  

To quote Mark:

“On twitter, facebook, instagram, and reddit, it’s @climactic. The website is climacticshow.co and will feature articles from the hosts, and hopefully from other contributors. You can email the show, hello@climacticshow.co, and news and topic suggestions, guest recommendations, and personal stories of listeners are warmly welcome.

To allow enough time to get the show to a high standard, Climactic will launch on World Environment Day, the 5th of June. But look out for a trailer and maybe some special, teaser episodes before then.”
