Our feature interview this week is a return to an old friend for an update with Rob Shirkey of Our Horizon. Our Horizon is working to promote the idea of warning labels on gas pumps to help connect at the gas pump, to the long-term consequences such as climate change. Rob joined the program early in the campaign and join us now for an update on his progress and tell the story of the advances that have already been accomplished.

You can find out more about Rob and Our Horizon here. (Check our YouTube page soon for the video full length interview!)

Kevin wraps up the show with some commentary about a recent back and forth between the famous science educator and host of the new Cosmos series, Neil Degrass Tyson and GMO activists about that issue. Despite my being a big fan of Neil, believe it or not we actually think both Neil and many of the protestors have entirely missed the point.

We are now producing high-quality interviews in full HD video as well as memberships that get you exclusive members content each week!
