On Saturday June 1st, the satellite XM radio program Green Is Good will spotlight Green Grid Radio. The program will air at 5pm EST on Sirius XM channel 244 (“America’s Talk Channel”). Green Grid Radio Founder, Adam Pearson, had a chance to speak with “Green is Good” host, John Shegerian, about how Green Grid Radio started, and some of the program’s educational goals.

Green Grid Radio is en route to St. Louis!
Earlier this year, the Clinton Global Initiative honored Green Grid Radio by inviting me to the Clinton Global Initiative University meeting in St. Louis from April 5-7th. As Founder of Green Grid Radio, I proposed an aggressive commitment to climate, energy, and sustainability education through Green Grid Radio. The mission of Green Grid Radio has always been to engage the public in these topics, and season 3’s adjusted format will achieve that better than ever before. We’ll be adding some more information about our Clinton Global Initiative commitment on the Green Grid Radio website soon.
And if you’re wondering what a “commitment” is: The Clinton Global Initiative University (CGI U) brings together college students to address global challenges with practical, innovative solutions. A CGI U Commitment to Action is a new, specific, and measurable plan that addresses a challenge on campus, in the local community, or around the world. Commitments can be small or large, global or local. No matter the size or scope, commitments help CGI U participants translate practical goals into meaningful and measurable results.
I look forward to a productive weekend of working with and learning from our world’s next leaders. Thank you for the support!
Good news from new friends at The Mindful Consumer. They named our show a “Green Podcast worth listening to,” alongside some other heavyweights in the ring. Their ringing endorsement: “The students are intelligent and find some great guests to interview, asking some excellent questions.”
