The lungs of our planet need our help with Jimmy Halfcut

In Episode 92 I sit down with Australian Environmentalist James Stanton Cooke, or ‘Jimmy Halfcut’, to talk about the role that our rainforests play in keeping our climate cool. I met James a few months back at a charity night in Bondi and with the fires currently burning across Australia I couldn’t help but think this was the perfect time to sit down and talk about mother nature.
