When it comes to learning more about the Earth, it’s important to look to our own solar system to see how the other planets have transformed over millions of years. That’s why we invited astrophysicist, author, host, and science educator Paul M. Sutter to join us this week on The Biofriendly Podcast to chat about interstellar space travel, life on other planets, and why Bruce Willis could be the key to everything!
With all of the recent extreme weather events occurring around the world, it’s important to look at our Earth’s natural water cycle and how it is being affected with our changing climate.

The world keeps changing and so does people’s consciousness. Today, we hear more and more discussions about healthy eating, personal and spiritual development, the responsibility we have in relation to how our actions impact the environment, and how sustainable attitudes can change our lives for the better. Sustainability, in particular, is a new, multidisciplinary field […]
