    Why Leah and Sabs focus on environmentalism over sustainability
    How we need to move past zero waste and “mason jar” sustainability
    How to be more intersectional in your environmentalism and ask harder questions
    How to call out and call in individuals
    Why Leah chooses compassion over shaming
    The challenges of “Columbusing”— people reclaiming things that BIPOC or other cultures have been doing for awhile
    Cultural appropriation and its impacts on the environmentalism movement
    The future of Intersectional Environmentalist
    And more!

So interesting!

A really great podcast. Sara introduces us to so many people and approaches for exploring our lives and finding the path we want to be on. Since most of us don’t have the time and $$ to go meet the people and try all these things ourselves, this is a great way to learn.

So unique and honest!

I’ve been hooked on medium well ever since I discovered it. Sara is an thoughtful, honest, and funny host and an insightful interviewer. I love the variety of topics including sustainability, wellness, herbalism, and especially entrepreneurship. Sara brings into the conversation lots of facets of these topics that you just don’t hear elsewhere.
