Everyone needs to listen!
Climate change really is a man made problem with a feminist solutions (both heavy terms that need lots of unpacking, which this podcast chips away at). Feminist solutions include not just women's work, but work of indigenous people and people from countries on the front lines of climate change. Very important and educational podcast, and having Maeve on adds a lovely comedic element.
What a fantastic podcast! Refreshing approach to a critical topic. Empowering me to get out there and make change. I absolutely love the zero waste week episode 21st Aug I think. Keep it up ladies!!
