Hey Gen C Changemakers. This is Generation Carbon. The podcast where kids like you, help grownups like us, save the planet.

We know you have tough questions about climate change, and we believe you deserve the answers!

In this episode of Generation Carbon, we are learning about Poop! Yes, Poop! Why does poop stink so much? What is it good for? And how can we use poop to grow things and restore the environment?

Our Science Spark comes from Julian and Aaron, Gen C Changemakers from Canberra, Australia and Fairfax Virginia. We hear what’s going on firsthand from Edie, Professor Walrus and Cee (short for Feces.) Learn more from Heather L. Montgomery the author of Who Gives a Poop?: Surprising Science from One End to the Other, and Gen C Super Scientific Story Reporter Clara from Chattanooga Tennessee. Clara also shares what she thinks life in 2050 may look like.

For more information about how organizations like Soil are Transforming Human Poop Into Eco-Friendly Fertilizer with the Poopmobile, check out The Kid Should See This.

Gen C Changemakers. We’d love you to get involved. If you’d like to ask a question or submit your super scientific findings in a future episode, we need Gen C science-minded story reporters on the climate case! Have your grownups visit to sign up.
