The New Constructivist is about pursuing ethical or meaningful work and the craft of making new things in complicated, uncertain times. In covering big ideas and real-world tactics, we share new ways of looking at work, how we spend our time, and how we make and spend money. Each month we talk to someone from a variety of fields doing innovative work. Topics include modern workplaces, ethics in tech, cities + local economies, craft + trades, healthy + sustainable food systems, consumer + lifestyle habits, education + training, organizing for change, and economic + organizational systems.

Columbene seems to have been born with the skills to make a great podcast—knows her subject, and knows how to get her guests talking and get out of the way. The result is a nutrient-dense stream of highly intelligent, highly interesting, and wonderfully colorful dialogue. Amazing she can get it so right so early in the game. Highly recommended.
