Planet Money on the Future of Energy
Planet Money is a great podcast that explores timely stories and issues through a global economic lens. Sound wonky? You might be surprised. You might also be surprised how often economics and chemistry overlap. The show a few weeks ago focused on the economics of energy, which included a short history of the race between the gas and electric car – a topic also covered recently on Distillations – and an interview with author Daniel Yergin about his new book The Quest, which focuses on the engineers and scientists who are searching for energy alternatives. The show is about 20 minutes long, so listen now or bookmark it for later, but from one niche-y podcast to another CHF is happy to show Planet Money some love.
