The Inquiry

Make a beeline for the 'Is Plastic Doomed?'episode and you won't be disappointed. There's a lot of chatter about plastics at the moment and it can be hard to sieve through all the information and get the story straight. The Inquiry is a calm, considered voice amongst all that noise. Produced by the BBC, The Inquiry speaks to experts on the topic of the week who disect an issue from several different perspectives. In the plastic episode (posted on the 29th of March), The Inquiry goes from Europe to Indonesia to get to the bottom of our plastic problem.

If you're looking to become a quick expert on a topic then this is the podcast for you! They also have other great episodes that deal with climate issues. This one for example covers eating our way out of climate change.
