Once a month on the A Rational Fear podcast feed with publish a Greatest Moral Podcast Of Our Generation podcast. These are long-form chats with climate leaders from all walks of life. This month I bring you two conversations with a couple of comedians whose work and energy around climate justice has inspired me for years.
🌏 IN THE CLIMATE NEWS SECTION:
Linh Do and I also chat with energy journalist and fellow Bertha Fellow, Antonia Juhasz about the Dutch Court ruling that Shell must cut their emissions to meet the Paris Agreement targets, and how shareholders of Chevron and Exxon are forcing those companies to reckon with their own carbon footprint.
The Juice Media’s Giordano Nanni, who’s Honest Government Ads reach millions and millions of people on-line. He’s one of Australia’s most influential YouTube creators on issues that matter.
and Rod Quantock. Rod is no strange to Australian comedy fans. From his early stand up days at The Last Laugh, to his work on TV shows like Australia You’re Standing In It (yes, and Captain Snooze).
Rod dedicated the last couple of decades to doing comedy about climate change . He is the guy who inspired me to start A Rational Fear as a vehicle to bring more people to the topic of climate change in an accessible way. The conversation with Rod Quantock is a little …. depressing but it’s worth hearing his point of view as a guy who has been active in this space for a long time…and is tired.
Enjoy the interviews and see you at the LIVE shows in Newcastle, Bega, Sydney and Melbourne!
