    Naomi Klein, Coronavirus Capitalism, and a People's Bailout Now!

    For our first podcast episode of the pandemic, we take a step back and examine the big picture — and who better to guide us than The Leap’s co-founder Naomi Klein. In a wide-ranging conversation, we explore the perils and possibilities of this political moment, from the unprecedented ways that Silicon Valley is benefiting from the pandemic, to the radicalizing power of “essential work."

    Homes for All and All for Our Home

    Homes for All and All for Our Home

    What could be more fundamental than the right of every person to a safe and healthy home — whether the place where we sleep each night, or our collective home, our planet? In conversation with the brilliant Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor and Daniel Aldana Cohen, we explore how a Green New Deal for Housing could protect us from climate chaos — and guarantee beautiful, affordable, and sustainable homes for all.

    Do The Greens Have a New Deal? Discuss.

    Do The Greens Have a New Deal? Discuss.

    We ask federal leader Elizabeth May about the Green Party’s plan to mobilize Canadian society to fight climate change. And we follow up with Alex Tyrrell, the head of Quebec’s provincial (and openly eco-socialist) GP, one of May’s highest-profile internal critics. The Green Party of Canada has seen a sudden surge in popularity — but can they really lead on the Green New Deal?

    The NDP vs. the GND

    The NDP vs. the GND

    We talk to maverick NDP candidate Svend Robinson about how the party is doing on climate so far, and whether it's capable of getting the Green New Deal right. We also touch on the NDP's history and future of opening itself to the creativity and energy of social movements. Spoiler alert: it's not always a pretty story.

Pretty disappointing as a podcast

Pretty disappointing as a podcast. I felt the NDP & Green Party interviews were just Avi Lewis talking about what we need and how great social movements like his are. We’re coming into an election , and We need you to ask hard questions not just accuse E. May of being a conservative. Pls explore what policy options these parties could adopt from the green new deal and compare their policies rather than just tell them what they’re not .also totally biased, as an NDPer possibly voting green this was hard to listen to and neither podcasts gave me the info I need.

So thrilled to support this amazing work

Avi and Maya do such a brilliant job of breaking down and highlighting why the environmental movement needs to link to so many others (justice, rights, etc). So thrilled to support this amazing work.
