Our podcasts were the first seeds planted in what was to become the Green Step enterprise. Airing on independent radio station UCC98.3fm since September 2018, we to deliver fun, accessible information on the climate and biodiversity crisis. The Green Step features a series of interviews, Monthly Mystbuster shows and information on current affairs in the green sphere.

We bring to you a selection of interviews with local not-for-profits organisations, volunteers, activists and business people alike. We feature up-to-date information on local events. Our aim is to help you find out what is happening in Cork and around Ireland in the face of the Climate Emergency.

We want our work to be accessible to everybody and therefore offer our podcasts and meditations free of change. However, if you have the means and want please considering making a donation on our patreon account. We put a lot of time, love and energy into making content for our followers and any support would be very appreciated. Thank you.
