Welcome to the first show!
Update If you are want to download, but are unfamiliar how, click the Podcasts RSS feed on the left part of the webpage. You’ll see a link to the mp3 file.
Update 6:01 am Thursday One minute after I wrote my comment below, I received an email from Apple saying my podcast has been approved. It’s called the “William M. Briggs show“. Searching on Podcast Alley doesn’t bring it up, but I found it another way and update the link to that site below.
I want to know what you think, but please especially let me know if you have any technical difficulties, particularly of those who download the podcast onto an mp3 player. This show is available for subscription from iTunes and Podcast Alley.
Shows should appear each Wednesday morning (New York time).
I hate thinking how I’m adding to the cacophony, but I’d rather hear my voice emanating from somebody’s earbuds than what currently seeps out.
Today’s topic: the mind of the climate activist. Most of us are inactivists, a description of which is not needed, the word being obvious. But we need to understand what drives the opposite behavior. What makes somebody into an activist?
Climate scientists, the ordinary citizen, even politicians are acting rationally, but what about the climate activist?
All that, plus a word from Grouch Marx and a music lesson from Shemp.
