Note: There is a small moment in the show with some racy language, for a bleeped versions - head here: https://soundcloud.com/cjlo1690am/the-worlds-we-want-ep-8
We talk with Andrew J. Hoffman, the Holcim (US) Professor of Sustainable Enterprise at the University of Michigan; a position that holds joint appointments in the Stephen M. Ross School of Business and the School of Environment and Sustainability. We talk a little about culture and the climate change debate and present part of his public lecture "Academia's Crisis of Relevance and the Emergent role of the Engaged Scholar."
