Adam Cox is joined by butcher and founder of Lamb2Ewe, Thomas Kitchen-Dunn, to look at how there have been increased demands for locally sourced meats amongst consumers and how buying directly from farmers helps to support local economies. They delve into the difference between buying directly from the source and buying from supermarkets, and buying from supermarkets can make it more difficult to know exactly where meat comes from. They discuss the positive environmental impacts of shopping for locally sourced meat and how to support local farmers.
Adam Cox is joined by financial adviser, Tim Morris, to discuss the growing trend for Ethical Investing. Tim explains that due to climate, environmental, and controversial policies many investors are choosing investments that are ethical and sustainable; that avoid companies involved in things like military funding and pollution, or those that contribute to poor health such as tobacco. They explore why some governments, such as in the US, appear to be in defiance of this positive trend – and share their predictions for the future of ethical investing.
Adam talks to Helen Parker, a money saving expert and passive income coach, about how to create an income outside of the typical employment model. They talk about models of passive income including multi-level marketing and why this model has a bad reputation. They explore how this model can work and what kind of people would work well in a system that allows for personal flexibility and therefore requires self-discipline and a desire to influence others.
