The Podcast

A holistic, irreverent, no-bullshit look at the climate crisis and all the ways we’re talking—and not talking—about it. We take a feminist, race-forward lens to the biggest story of our time. Some people might call it intersectional, we call it honest. Co-hosted by Mary Annaïse Heglar and Amy Westervelt. Listen wherever you get your podcasts! 

The Newsletter

Our weekly newsletter brings you original commentary and analysis from the hosts—with the same no-holds-barred, honest approach as our podcast—as well as rounds up the best climate coverage of the week. Subscribers get access to bonus podcast episodes, events, and our undying love.
