About this Episode

So you think you’re eco-conscious hey? You don’t own a car, you keep a kitchen compost and you even reuse those brown paper mushroom bags to discretely drink your canned beer on public transport. Good for you! Unfortunately it adds up to about nothing if you take just one domestic flight.

Fly shame is real, and many people are going cold turkey on holiday making to reduce their environmental impact. In this episode, Justin B tries to convince Justin Z not to become one of these people. We also talk about new interesting findings in evolutionary biology, how a jet engine works and the magic castle in Los Angeles.
