    338) Vanessa Andreotti: Allowing Earth to dream through us

    What might it mean for humanity to reach a level of maturation to be able to confront the multilayered crises we now face—calling upon us to “grow up and show up” for ourselves and our planet?

    336) Max Ajl: A deeper green new deal for the people

    If the popularized vision of the Green New Deal were to be realized, how might that play out? And how do we contextualize the historical process of creating nation-states deemed as “underdeveloped”, “developing”, or “developed”?

Ajl is based at Wageningen University's Rural Sociology Group, and he is an associated researcher with the Tunisian Observatory for Food Sovereignty and the Environment.

    334) Melanie Yazzie: Building Indigenous solidarity and power

    334) Melanie Yazzie: Building Indigenous solidarity and power

    What does it mean for those working within academia to become scholar-activists—going beyond working to rise within the ranks of educational institutions to engage with and help enact change within their communities?

    In this episode, we welcome Melanie Yazzie Ph.D., a citizen of the Navajo Nation. She is Assistant Professor of Native American Studies and American Studies at the University of New Mexico. She specializes in Navajo/American Indian history, political ecology, Indigenous feminist and queer studies, and theories of policing and the state.

Episode 305

Brilliant, incisive, brutally depressing

Sarah184308 ,

I’ve learnt so much from this podcast!

Each episode is with someone who is an expert in their field and Kamea is great interviewer

Must listen for all

Wonderful journalism! Addresses the climate crisis in a holistic way.

Only criticism I have is lack of questioning or exploration on the faults of the Green New Deal - which would result in rapid, damaging extractive mining (often on indigenous lands and untouched habitats) in order to harvest the materials for new infrastructure.
