During the last year 2017 I have published 12 episodes, including this one. Please listen to the excerpts of the episodes that have been played most. This is a review of the FasterThanExpected podcast in 2017.

In this episode I have an interview with Torstein Viddal from Norway, now living on Greenland. He is a novelist, has a master in information science and is an eco activist since decades. Torstein is following data of ice extent and volume in the Arctic very closely. Now in 2017 he has observed the lowest ice volume of millions of years.
This interview with Jürgen Hornschuh about living with animals should have been part of the 19th episode “worldwide connected – Burden on other Species”, but we haven’t been able to connect technically. So we recorded it afterwards. I am sure it is worth an extra episode.
co-hosted episode with Kevin from New Zealand and Wolfgang from Germany
This episode we want to dedicate to the animals and the burden inflicted on the other species by us, Homo sapiens. In times of abrupt climate change or ongoing anthropogenic climate disruption, there is no doubt, we are in the sixth mass extinction event. Billions of animals are dying and suffering. And 200 species (of animals and plants) are going extinct every day.
These days climate disruption leads to an exponential occurrence of disasters. Hence, I am talking with the American disaster manager Nick from ReliefAnalysis. I talk with him about different phases of disaster management, about exponential extreme weather events and about a hospice situation.
This is the first worldwide podcast episode, co-hosted by Kevin Hester, New Zealand, and Wolfgang Werminghausen, Germany. We are talking about the role of water in abrupt climate change, the lack of water, floods, risk for nuclear power plants and the inner connection with the whole nature, that can be experienced with water.
Everybody who is dealing with abrupt climate change leading to a climate catastrophe will stumble upon different emotions, that may be summarized as grief. In this 14th episode I am honored to introduce a wonderful woman to you, who dedicates herself to offer grief rituals: Azul-Valerie Thome.
