Hardly any green podcast available in Dutch. Discutafel is unique as a long-term gardening podcast.

Where are the Dutch?

By the way, where are the Dutch green and sustainable podcasters? We chose to investigate Flemish and English titles, too, to put together a nice list.
We happened to discover a couple of suitable American podcasts and decided to investigate these, as well. But we think a podcast of your own climate zone and region is usually more interesting for gardeners. And as we’re European …..

Poor retrievability

To be honest, it took a lot of digital digging and identification to find ear-catching podcasts for people like you, who feel committed to eco-friendly gardening and sustainability projects.
This has also to do with poor retrievability on the web and limited information provided for each title.

Short list

Firstly, we made a list of features podcasts had to meet in order to win a position in the Discutafel Green Podcast Top 5 of 2019:

  • Main theme.
    Green and sustainable themes like in our programmes.
    Gardening, permaculture, sustainable agriculture, nature, environmental issues or cheery projects on energy, mobility and food.
  • Language.
    Dutch or English podcasts. Also Flemish.
    Wij concentrated on European podcasts.
  • Frequency/number of episodes.
    At least 3 new episodes in 2019.
    Published as a podcast only, or as a ‘tinned’ version of a radio programme.


We judged the podcasts in the short list in order to put together the Discutafel Green Podcast Top 5 of 2019.
We used the following criteria.

  • Constancy of the formula
  • Technical quality
  • Catching up value:
    to which extent does the podcast maintain a long-term value?
  • Atmosphere, audio experience
  • Chat factor:
    information density. At Discutafel, we don’t like too much chit-chat 😉
