  • Listening notes: zero carbon cement on the Volts podcast

    I listen to quite a few podcasts, and as an experiment in Jan 2024, I’m going to try to share the notes from ones that stand out for me. This is partly as a way to retain what I learn, and share with others, but get better at writing quickly. The first one is an…
