Check out our Latest Episodes
This week Rob Shirkey from Our Horizon helps Saryn discuss some controversial opinions. Should Rob testify FOR Big Oil, AGAINST the cities suing them? Should environmentalists dissarm and retreat on Kinder Morgan? We tackle some big topics in our usual flippant style :)
Carolyn Tinglin MSc RN, President of the National Association of Cannabis Professionals joins us to talk about the environmental benefits of hemp; it's industrial uses, it's medical applications and how the story of it being illegal was based on greed and racism in the first place. To benefit who? Oil companies of course :)
Are you a climate hawk or an environmentalist? We talk about what it means to take climate change seriously and how this might challenge or threaten some of your other priorities, even for environmentalists.
We talk to Beatrice Hunter a grandmother and First Nations Land Protector from Labrador, Canada about her experience fighting the Muskrat Falls mega-project, including having spent 11 days in jail for crossing a barrier in protest.
Cape Town, South Africa nears "Day 0" for extreme water rationing measures after 3 years of drought and 60% of residents ignoring municipal instructions to drastically limit water use.
This week we do a deep-dive on Toronto's climate plan: Transform TO. The bill passed last year, but budget time is coming up and it doesn't look like the Mayor is working to fund it and without funding the plan is essentially wet paper.
Documentary writer and director Christine Nielsen joins us to talk about the new CBC Nature of Things Doc Jumbo: The Life Of An Elephant Superstar. Christine talks about the emotions of elephants, the story of Jumbo and about the science of investigating a death from over 100 years ago.
We do our best this week to end on a high note, with Stefan opening on a number of wins that you might have missed in between all the Russia investigation and North Korea nuclear threats.
We spend most of the show talking about a George Monbiot opinion article from the Guardian about the thing that keeps him up at night. No it's not North Korea, or even Trump. It's how we're going to feed billions more people with ever decreasing ability to grow food. Happy Holidays!
This holiday show takes a relaxed pace to talk about the future in a fireside chat about the past and future. Grab a coco and get comfortable :)
