On the first half of this thought provoking episode of the Positvely Green Podcast, meet Chris Walker, who describes himself as an “old white guy who questions everything”. Raised in the Santa Clara Valley before it was Silicon Valley–Chris grew up in an agricultural context, working summers drying grapes with his grandfather in Coachella Valley.
You will hear Chris’ thoughts about:
- How narratives shape our reality and how we might challenge them
- Questioning standards for products and food
- Resources and recommendations for additional learning
