The latest episode of our podcast is all about Heathrow and the plan to build a third runway. James visited the plot of land we've bought on the proposed site of the new runway, while Joss went to find out why organisations from the National Trust to the RSPB are also opposed to the idea. Meanwhile, Christian went to see what happened at the latest Climate Rush event down at Heathrow's Terminal 1.

I meant to set up one of these yesterday but never quite got round to it, so I'm really pleased to see someone else (thanks, David Morgan!) has set up a Heathrow petition on the Number 10 website. If you're itching for another way to vent your anger at the government's appalling decision, sign it now.
