[Podcast] Grow. Don’t Mow

This audio was created using Microsoft Azure Speech Services

Who knew that wasps have a purpose in life. Did you? Another mystery I will never understand is how oat milk in a flat white tastes so good yet so bad in a cappuccino. I digress though – this is a podcast about #SEGreatPeople and great people at that.

Episode 3: Grow. Don’t Mow

In episode 3 we learn about biodiversity – the variety of living species there are on our planet and how we all interact. But it doesn’t just stop there as we get in touch with our resident Biodiversity Guru, Katie Mills who explains why we (humans) are so reliant on biodiversity and what we can do to protect our environment. From growing your grass to planting sweet-smelling lavender and even getting ladybirds posted through your letterbox (you read correctly). There are tips for us all.

Oh, and I can’t forget the GBB quiz – you will hear Rob and Emma battle it out in a tense game of … Rock, Paper, Scissors. Yes, it’s even possible on a podcast.
