Fire is cathartic. It allows you to start over. And not just in the figurative sense. The Nature Conservancy‘s Zach Prusak came on right before Christmas to discuss the purpose of fire in nature and quite a bit more.
Just like a lot of people, Zach took a circuitous route from having an interest in ants to helping nourish the environment through burning it. It started in Daytona (like I did), involved a lot of comedy albums (like the ones I had), and then going to UCF (which I also did). Are we the same person? Is this a Tyler Durden situation? Listen and find out!
I couldn’t let a chance to talk about the wildfires of 1998 go, and before Bad Business Ideas™, I pitch myself to head up Visit Florida. Because who do you trust more? Me or Pitbull? Well, Pitbull, obviously, but I don’t think he wants the job.
0:00 – Zach is here, comedy and learning will ensue. First up, Hot or Bothered.
15:27 – Controlled burns to revitalize the environment. That’s Zach’s jam.
32:31 – It’s a pop (culture) quiz! What isn’t considered pop culture these days?
40:24 – Before Bad Business Ideas™, I pitch some ideas to Zach about how I would run Visit Florida.
54:16 – Music. Where Zach listens, how he listens, and what comedy albums mean to him.
1:06:57 – We get logical. Biological. Zach’s degrees are in biology. So that happened.
1:15:20 – The show is at an end! How can you get involved in the Nature Conservancy? Find out!
