Show Notes:

In this interview I’m joined by Dr Christo Miliotis, scientist and & entrepreneur, for a discussion all about the life within the soil and its role in supporting life on this planet.

Tiny microorganisms inhabit every place upon this planet and for much of human society we have at best dismissed them, and at worse waged war against them.
In this insightful talk Christo helps to shed light on the significance of the microbes and multitude of organisms that live within the soil beneath our feet.

We cover their role in feeding plants and their ability to transfer gases from the atmosphere.
We learn why current practices of using chemicals in agriculture cause damage to this essential life.

We understand the building and value of a ‘soil carbon sponge’ and its significance in being able to draw down not just carbon, but also water vapour from the atmosphere.

And we gain a broad picture of the impact of how we to treat our soil connects to the health of everything from the climate, to the oceans, to the microbiome within our own guts.

I take a very holistic view of the world and find enormous hope when we expand our thinking outwards and consider our issues as interconnected.

So it’s a huge delight for me to have the opportunity to speak with so many varied personalities here.
