Katie Patrick’s podcasts are rich with useful information and very insightful, even for veterans of the sustainability movement. I really appreciate the economy with which she conducts her interviews; she avoids frivolous banter, gets right to the point, and asks well thought-out questions. She also listens carefully and ensures she has understood the more complex concepts before moving on, which in turn helps me as a listener. She will occasionally weave in experiences from her life, creating a more dynamic interview, without detracting from the messages conveyed by her subjects.
Katie's work is a really fresh and on-point approach for anyone who is involed in change - her stuff is awesome.
