Episode 21: Dave Atkins – Forester
Tate Chamberlin sat down with Dave Atkins, a forest ecologist turned publisher who has worked across the western US for the past 40 years.

How do we bear in mind the necessity to fulfill our individual and most basic needs, while also understanding our actions affect our community and environment? Can we achieve a balance?
