A conversation with Anastassia Makarieva, researcher at the Petersburg Nuclear Physics Institute and with a fellowship at the University of Munich, about how healthy ecosystems, and specifically healthy forests, regulate moisture and thus rain. We discuss tipping points and where to look for wet spots even in very dry landscapes.

Mark Drewell and Marcus Link – The iPhone moment of regenerative agriculture through a journey of the soul and spreadsheet
A check-in interview with Marcus Link and Mark Drewell, founders of New Foundation Farms (NFF), about how they went from trying to raise £20M to buying 1000 acres in the UK, building their stacked enterprise on leased land and ending up going almost full circle back to the beginning.
A conversation with Paul Greive, founder of Pasture Bird, about rising millions of birds on pasture per year, selling to one of the largest chicken producers in the world, the positive impact of chickens, and much more.
Zach Weiss – On a mission to train hundreds of thousands of people in key water restoration techniques
A check-in interview with Zach Weiss, founder of Elemental Ecosystems and Water Stories, about his mission to train hundreds of thousands of people in key water restoration techniques, institutions, how would Zach make the space investable and bankable, and much more.
Ties van der Hoeven – The regreening project we can’t afford not to do, restoring the water and weather systems in the Med, starting with fish
A conversation with Ties van der Hoeven, founder and creative director of The Weather Makers, about restoring the water cycles in the Mediterranean, the effect of water vapour on cooling the planet, our tunnel vision focussed on carbon, and much more.
A conversation with Henry Rowlands, CEO of Soil in Formation (SIF) about how to measure a holistic set of parameters related to soil risks and soil health accurately, in-situ and in real time by using electrochemical sensors and more. Soil in Formation (SIF) is on the verge of making it possible to measure a holistic set of parameters related to soil risks and soil health accurately, in-situ and in real-time by using electrochemical sensors that are set to enable the auditable measurement of soil carbon and soil health.
A conversation with Marcel de Berg, founder of Green Water Cools, about the cooling potential of green water, avoiding regrets and focusing a bit of our attention and resources on restoring water cycles, biodiversity, and more.
After 25.000 hours of research Marcel concluded that the cooling potential of green water fare out paces the less heating of CO2 reductions. So why don’t we switch on this massive airco cooler? What is holding back the systems investors, the investors pension funds, insurance companies, etc. that rely on a thriving global system which seems to be under threat?
A conversation with Dr Millán Millán, director of the Centro de Estudios Ambientales del Mediterráneo (CEAM),about restoring the small water cycle, why the summer storms and rains have disappeared and how this turned out to be connected to massive snows in the UK, and massive floods in Central Europe and much more.
Farmers’ Philosophy series! Koen van Seijen in conversation with Anne van Leeuwen, regenerative farmer and co-owner of Bodemzicht Farm
We can learn so much more from farmers than how to restore soil. Regeneration goes much further and deeper. In the second episode of the Farmers’ Philosophy series Koen van Seijen, host of the Investing in Regenerative Agriculture and Food podcast, talks with Anne van Leeuwen, regenerative farmer and co-owner of Bodemzicht Farm. A deep dive into the non-existence of nature-culture divide, getting back in touch with yourself, nutrient dense food as basic human right, community, minimum wage, true cost economy, and much more.
A conversation with Alpha Lo, physicist and writer of the Climate Water Project, about the importance of slowing water down, the connection between drought, fire, and floods, and the massive role water plays in heating and cooling our planet.
