Do you believe a single moment can bring about significant change?

In today’s episode with Rick Friedman, he shares how finding a simple book sparked a passion for bringing a voice to climate change and the issues facing our planet. 

Many CausePods are born from a single moment of inspiration where a few months in the rearview mirror, you can easily say that was a great 90-degree turn in a new direction, and it was a simple moment that started it.

The Breath of Fresh Earth podcast brings a creative format to his podcast to keep people engaged in the episode. 

Creating a podcast that takes full use of the production process to create something unique each time is a technique that is often overlooked. 

Like the book that influenced Rick, he hopes the episode sparks a listener to see climate change a little bit differently.
