Inspirations with Lisa Garr
S7:Ep856 minsOctober 2014Guest: Josh Tickell, Rebecca Tickell

We have been brainwashed to believe that gasoline is our only option for transportation fuel. So say Josh and Rebecca Tickell in their award-winning documentary FUEL, an insightful portrait of America’s addiction to oil and an uplifting testament to the immediacy of new energy solutions. Now, in this eye-opening interview with Lisa Garr, originally webcast on October 23, 2014, Josh and Rebecca discuss their latest film PUMP, which shows that there are alternative fuels that are cheaper and cleaner, while also exposing the machinations of the entrenched special interests that are fighting change.

Josh Tickell is America’s #1 Strategist for Connecting with the Millennial Generation. In 1998, Tickell had published his first book and began touring colleges and giving talks to the first members of Generation Y. In 2008, his first feature film, FUEL, was released. His latest documentary, PUMP, exposes a conspiracy to block fuel choice at the gas pump and is being theatrically released.

Rebecca Harrell Tickell is an accomplished producer and filmmaker.
