A soothing balm to climate anxiety

By Tem90 - Jan 05 2020
Read more
Anna Jane and Mary Anne bring humanity and emotion back to climate activism. Their conversations are emotionally nuanced and balance between hope and action but never despair. They are very candid about their own struggles with their work in a refreshing way. The interviews have also introduced me to so many more people in this fight and give unique and fresh perspectives on how to help and cope. This has helped me find a climate community, even virtually, but that’s so necessary.

Beautiful, critical conversations

We talk with May Boeve, climate power lady and executive director of 350.org, about reaching across divisions and winning climate fights against all odds, how to sustain ourselves and fellow activists for the long haul, and what it's like to be in a Vogue photo shoot.

**One editorial note: There's a mistake in our Dinner Party Climate Fact, which states that wind and solar were the number one source of energy last year in the US and worldwide. That is incorrect - it should have state that wind and solar were the number one NEW source of energy. Sorry about that, listeners!

We get real exploring how we can make beauty out of brokenness, inspired by the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with gold, and we chat with Nellis Kennedy-Howard about the women of Standing Rock, how we can't leave our identities at the door of our activism, and making the climate movement welcoming to everyone.
