I’ve given up on being perfect. I’ve given up on paralyzing guilt. It’s okay I don’t have an electric car or ride a bicycle everywhere. But, it doesn’t mean I can’t do my small bit for the environment. Here are three ways I found to be a little bit more eco-friendly.
On the latest episode of the Pint & Click Podcast, Dave and Tony along with two new panelists, Kristyn and Joel, have a wide-ranging discussion about a variety of brand new media. Tony discusses the latest game in The Legend Of Zelda series, Breath Of The Wild (available at DPPL for Nintendo Switch and Wii U); Kristyn talks about Roxane Gay's new collection of short stories Difficult Women; Joel examines News Of The World, the latest novel by Paulette Jiles; and Dave explores the first volume of the rebooted Jugheadcomic book series, as written by Chip Zdarsky. Finally, the whole panel discusses Logan, the latest (and possibly last) installment of the X-Men film series, directed by James Mangold and starring Hugh Jackman, Dafne Keen and Patrick Stewart.
