The Simpler OneEarth Living Podcast

Podcasting is an important component in the educational work of OneEarth Living. Each month we interview someone who works with alternatives to MultiEarth living and shows ways for us to deepen our commitment to compassionate, essential OneEarth living. In the 2020s, we all need to be training one another in the more radical changes that Earth is requiring of us to keep the planet livable. The episodes are created in collaboration with Simple Living Works, hence the name Simpler OneEarth Living. Gerald Iversen and Lee Van Ham are co-hosts.
Before we called our podcasting Simpler OneEarth Living Podcast, we called it The Common Good Podcast.

Though slow at first, congregations, faith organizations, and faith-based campuses are now hurrying to develop actions that help save life on our planet. Environmental activism can be strengthened when it is also spiritual practice.
