Learn what’s going on at the podcasting hub of the Pikes Peak region, the Studio 809 podcast collective. Over a dozen podcasts originating in the area can be found at studio809podcasts.com. Studio 809 founder Dave Gardner fills us in specifically on the environmentally focused podcasts originating in the “basement studio” – Peak Environment, the GrowthBusters podcast about sustainable living and The Overpopulation Podcast.
Also, local activist and singer/songwriter Lindsay Facknitz shares a couple of original songs and provides information and perspective on the current Colorado Springs Utilities initiative to create an updated Electric Integrated Resource Plan (EIRP).
