Listen to “Separation Anxiety” (18:30)
Podcast: 99% Invisible (Episode 213)
This is an episode about separating your garbage into the various categories: plastic, paper, glass, compost, etc. Do you do it at home? Or someone does it for you? Waste sorting and management should definitely start at home. It’s only a matter of creating the habit and a system that works in your household.
Interesting and short video on How a sorting machine works.
The article “Those Wasteful Europeans” in The Atlantic is great! The idea that Americans produce the most waste per capita seems to be an old one.
Listen to ‘Meet the Press’ host Chuck Todd, Trump’s “Pivot”, Polling Mayhem, and more (1:26:03)
Podcast: Keepin’it 1600 (Episode 9)
This is a great conversation worth following every minute. Even the off topics are brilliant! Interesting strategies of how Clinton should be dealing with Trump now. Found particularly amusing categorizing Trump as “flip-floper on steroids” and “old white male prejudice version of Kim Kardashian”. And yes, ultimately, Trump’s election would be just an enormous embarrassment to the United States.
