Hot & Bothered, hosted by Dissent, is a new podcast on climate change politics for the 99%. Co-hosts Daniel Aldana Cohen and Kate Aronoff investigate the intersections of climate, politics, and the economy, with dispatches from grassroots organizers alongside leading wonks and scholars. Can there be prosperity and redistribution without oil, coal, or gas? Or is our low-carbon future bound to be nasty, brutish, and austere? What kinds of movements can power a fair and thorough transformation of our economy? Hot & Bothered's first season of six episodes pairs reported news roundups with feature interviews on some of climate politics’ most burning questions. If climate justice demands big ideas and even bigger movements, we'll put a mic to them. We’re hot, bothered, and recording. And we want to hear from you! Tweet at us at #HotBotheredClimate.

Glad you’re back!
So glad you’re back, and please don’t leave! Love your framing, politics, and grace in dealing with a complicated subject. Glad the production has bumped up a notch too!
Preaches to the choir.
This podcast does little to advance knowledge about topic. A denier will not be convinced by anything they talk about (Mann interview possible exception).
Climate change politics for all
I've found few spaces in media, academics, or policy that approach climate change as both materially intersectional and politically urgent. Hot and Bothered fills this critical niche, stitching together perspectives from science, policy and movement activism. Interviews are informed, insightful, nuanced and inspiring. These discourses cohere into a Left climate policy for everyone.
