TREE Podcast #10 - Sustainability on an Island (with Bryan Ogden)

After a long break the TREE podcast is back with a special guest in a special location. Bryan Ogden joins host Jordan Flagel to discuss blockchain technologies and artificial intelligence - and how he is using them both to pursue sustainability and affect climate policy. The two former grad school classmates sat down in the jewel of an island known as Malta, where they completed their studies together in the MSc. Sustainable Environmental Resources Management program.

TREE Podcast #9 - The Uber Podcast (with Nick & Bek)

After a relatively long hiatus, the TREE podcast is back. Nick Martin and Travis Bek join host Jordan Flagel for the most unorthodox episode to date. Nick is a Policy Analyst at the Canada West Foundation specializing in electricity policy, and Bek works for Club Med resorts in the Caribbean. This podcast was recorded as the trio made their way to 17th Avenue in Calgary's Uptown area - while attempting to board a train and eventually hopping in an Uber - and covered a wide variety of topics from initial settlement in the Americas to differences in Canadian and American politics.
