Introducing: Greater Greener Georgia!
Greater Greener Georgia is a short biweekly podcast where we talk about current event issues in Georgia and around the country, especially issues around climate change and the environment. We know it can be hard to focus on important news in today’s society, especially with the flood of information that comes at us from all directions. We want to help simplify things and highlight the problems and successes that matter.
