On today’s episode, I’m tackling N is for Nori and Nutrient Pollution.

In the first half of the program, I dish all things Nori—what it is, what it tastes like, and where you can buy it.

Then I dive into all things seaweed—varieties of, use, and then explore the potential of this super plant.  Is it the new kale! *One can hope

In the second half of the show, N is for Nutrient Pollution, I reflect back to the days when I was a teeenager and lived in Pittsburgh, the city of three rivers the color of mud.

The I define nutrient pollution and share examples of past and present environmental catastrophes that are a result of nutrient pollution.

Learn what is being done to help slow and change this synthetic and naturally occurring process. Lastly, find out what you can do to help the future of our planet.

And remember if you don’t want to listen, you can head over to my Conservation blog.
