Doing a weekly radio show is a lot of work, and we couldn’t possibly do it alone. We would like to acknowledge their contributions here. For the bio’s of the shows director Daryn Caister click here, and for co-host and producer Stefan Hostetter click here.
AKA Dr. Sustainable (formerly Dr. Doom) – Kevin Farmer has been a volunteer longer than anyone on this show other than the original founder, Jordan Poppenk. In fact he’s been with the Green Majority radio show with CIUT 89.5FM since the very second episode way back in 2006!
Kevin has had a variety of roles over the years, including most recently being our on-air technician. He is best known, and loved for his end-of-show punditry as
Dr. Doom Dr. Sustainable.
We love you Kevin, never stop being you.

The Sustainable Economist – Hi! I’m an economics professor at Sheridan College in Toronto, Canada. The rest of the time, I’m a fee-only financial planner that helps ordinary people invest their own money online in a sustainable manner.
As an expert on socially responsible investing, impact investing, and the green economy, I’ve been featured in The Globe & Mail, Advisor’s Edge Report, and Reuters, and appeared on CBC’s The Lang & O’Leary Exchange (video above). I earned my BA in Economics from Dalhousie University (Halifax, Canada) and my Master’s in Strategic Leadership towards Sustainability from the Blekinge Institute of Technology (Karlskrona, Sweden). I’m also the lead researcher for Ethical Market’s Green Transition Scoreboard® research report, which details more than $5.2 trillion of private investments in the global green economy since 2007.
