The Past, Present, and Future of Plastic

The Past, Present, and Future of Plastic

This week we explore, “The past, present, and future of plastic.” We were visited by 3 ghosts; the ghost of plastic past, the ghost of plastic present, and the ghost of plastic yet to come. Look, plastic is bad. But some people, us included, didn’t realize how bad it truly is! So lets get to the bottom of it.

Every week on Stranger Still, we take the questions you’ve never questioned to ask and try to answer them. We want to make you laugh and teach you something interesting at the same time. So join us every Wednesday for another fun filled learn!

If you’ve got a strange question you want answered ask us on Facebook, tweet us @StrangerStill, or drop us an email at podcast@strangerstillshow.com. To find other great podcasts, head on over to FlyingMachine.Network
