How to Live a Climate-Friendly Life Guest: Peter Kalmus, PhD, Author of “Being the Change: Live Well and Spark a Climate Revolution,” Climate Scientist, NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory If you’re concerned about rising global temperatures and the problems they’re creating, it can be depressing to think how little is within your control. How much difference will it really make for the planet if you drive your car less, recycle your garbage and pay your power company a little more for renewable electricity? Not a lot frankly. But making those changes – and some more radical ones like composting his own poop – brought unexpected benefits to Peter Kalmus’ life. For one thing, he says he’s happier - even though he doesn’t travel by plane anymore and feeds his family food that’s been discarded by grocery stores. Tanner Mangum Talks Touchdowns and Mental Health (Originally aired Jun. 23, 2017) Guest: Tanner Mangum, BYU quarterback Tanner Mangum burst on to the Cougar scene in a blaze of Hail-Mary glory in the fall of his freshman year, 2015. Then he stepped back to the bench and graciously backed up starting quarterback Taysom Hill the next year, earning praise for his positive attitude. But, Tanner Mangum may have made his biggest impression yet, off the field, when he posted on social media a few months back about his experience with anxiety and depression. Sports Watching: The Last Bastion of Appointment Viewing (Originally aired Jun. 23, 2017) Guest: Mikel Minor, Senior Coordinating Producer for BYUtv Sports Cable TV subscriptions are declining as more and more of us turn to internet streaming services like Netflix and Hulu. We don’t want to be forced to buy a bundle of cable channels we’ll never watch just to get the few we do watch. Streaming is cheaper, more customized and it’s on-demand. Plus, nobody seems to care anymore about tuning in at a set time every week to watch their favorite TV show live. But sports is different. Mikel Minor says “sports is the last bastion of appointment viewing.” Sitake Gets Ready for Season Two (Originally aired Jun. 23, 2017) Guest: Kalani Sitake, BYU Football Head Coach Coach Sitake remembers the lessons he learned from Coach LaVell Edwards, describes his team's culture, opens up about new season pressure and shares insight on balancing family and football.
