Environmentalism Begins with Family - Interview with Dr. David Suzuki

January 15th, 2019 · Comments

It was an honour to interview one of my childhood heroes and provide it to this podcast. Every week while I was growing up, our family would gather to watch "The Nature of Things" narrated by Dr. David Suzuki. To talk with him on the phone was almost surreal, very enjoyable, and instructional for us all. Enjoy the interview!

If you would like to read the interview transcript, you will find it through THIS LINK.
