The Overpopulation Podcast
About This Show
Overpopulation is the main driver of resource depletion, dire poverty, climate change, and species extinction. The good news: overpopulation is solvable humanely through dramatically reducing birthrates. In this show we'll make the connections between overpopulation and the many vexing issues of the day. And we'll promote smaller families to achieve a sustainable population and create a more resilient future.

In observance of International Childfree Day, author Laura Carroll joins host Dave Gardner to discuss the choice couples make to be childfree. Laura served as editor for the book, Man Swarm: How Overpopulation is Killing the Wild World by Dave Foreman, and is the author of The Baby Matrix: Why Freeing Our Minds From Outmoded Thinking About Parenthood & Reproduction Will Create a Better World, and Families of Two: Interviews With Happily Married Couples Without Children by Choice. For over the last 15 years, she has been researching the childfree choice and those who make it, and has interviewed thousands who’ve made this choice. The discussion includes our pronatal culture and where to get support, myths about family size, the cost of raising children, and of course doing your part to solve overpopulation. Laura believes there is growing acceptance of the childfree choice.
