On #gsh61 we were joined by our guest, activist and writer on environmental issues, Rob Hopkins.
Rob co-founded the internationally renowned TransitionNetwork (check it out-you’ll find much of interest) and also earns extra Generating Steam Heat punk points for co-founding our local brewery New Lion Brewery.
Rob is an uber music fan and he selected a show full of post punk delights. He also talks about how growing up listening to post punk, punk and indie pop influenced his outlook and ideas for the transition movement.
We hope you enjoy the show as much as we did in the studio…
