  • by JW

A new venture, a new podcast “for reimagining everything” from Rob Hopkins.

As of Friday 15th May: “What if … birdsong drowned out the traffic?” with singer Sam Lee and Mya-Rose Craig aka Birdgirl…


Rob Hopkins, founder of the Transition Movement, launched a book late last year:


Here he is in Frome:

Rob discusses how we can create a better future following publication of his new book ‘From What Is to What If – unleashing power of imagination to create the future we want’.

And this week, a podcast comes out:


“What if … birdsong drowned out the traffic?”

Rob Hopkins

Today I am launching a new venture, and I would love you to be part of it. If there was ever a time for fresh thinking, for being bold, visionary and imaginative – for reimagining everything – this it is. And so, in a couple of weeks, I will be starting a brand new podcast series called ‘From What If to What Next’.


The idea is that it will be based on ‘What If’ questions sent in by you, the listener – and my challenge will be to collect together the best people to explore, debate and develop the idea that you provide. Together we will look at how to make that leap – From What If to What Next.

The first episode, which will be released on Friday May 15th, will ask “What if … birdsong drowned out the traffic?” and I will be joined by Mercury Prize winning singer Sam Lee, who once got recordings of birdsong to number 18 in the charts, and Mya-Rose Craig, also known as Birdgirl, the British Bangladeshi ornithologist and campaigner for equal rights, the youngest person ever to receive an honorary doctorate from a British University. It will be a beautiful, and inspiring start to this new podcast adventure. Where it goes from there? Well, after a second episode that will explore ‘What If … we had a Universal Basic Income’, that’s up to you…

So, if you like what I do and how I do it, or if you enjoyed ‘From What Is to What If’, it would be glorious if you would go to to subscribe and support the creation of this new audio & book endeavour. Thanks so much. Please share.
