TGM Radio – April 12, 2013 – Second Hand Oil

Our Horizon

What do cigarettes and oil have in common? Robert Shirkey thinks that they are both dangerous to your health, that maybe they should be labeled the same. His group Our Horizon wants gas station nozzles to remind people when they fill up… “Hey! This is bad for you!”. I grill Robert about his idea, both the premise and the realistic expectations of its success and impact.

In the second half of the show we take a look back in time with the Green Majority’s founder Jordan Poppenk. We talk about his memories of the early show and where its gone since then.
