If you are in the habit of listening to podcasts, you are part of a group that has only been growing. A Globo survey along with the Brazilian Institute of Public Opinion (IBOPE) indicated that, last year, 28 million Brazilians regularly consumed podcasts, a number 33% higher than the previous year, which counted 21 million listeners. This year, the Brazilian Association of Podcasters estimates that there are already over 34 million.

Such an increase has been driving the offer of programs focused on a wide range of subjects, including sustainability, one of the most relevant global themes today. We have selected six podcasts that bring content about this universe, with different approaches, in a light and informative way. It's worth playing!
