    EMILY ATKIN: the best case ever for climate rage!

    EMILY ATKIN: the best case ever for climate rage!

    Emily Atkin is America’s foremost climate journalist and founder of the Heated newsletter, awarded Best Environmental Journalism of 2020.. I remember first coming across Emily on Twitter when she posted about fossil fuel media campaigns. Her Tweet targeted Twitter. The then Presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren subsequently retweeted Emily’s tweet, tagging Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey …who then changed Twitter's policy around fossil fuel advertising. It was all just a bit meta. And super powerful. Emily and I then connected two years ago when she asked to repost a blog essay I’d written about Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison’s horrendous handling of the Summer bushfires which killed more than 3 billion animals and 37 people. It was a story of corruption, lies, ignorance and fossil fuel industry interests. The headline was Why we must rage at Prime Minister Sco Mo. Emily ran with a slightly different, but telling headline: Think American politics are bad? Wait 'til you hear about Australia.
    The wild idea I speak to Emily in this episode is that the climate crisis is that the climate crisis didn’t just happen to us, it was done to us. And it was done to us by the fossil fuel industry. And so the most appropriate reaction is rage. The fossil fuel industry likes to distract us from this with campaigns that get us counting our carbon footprint and blaming ourselves. I have to say, until this chat with Emily I had been somewhat sucked in.This is a super timely chat, landing right on the two-year anniversary of the bushfires. I have reposted my original essay to my latest substack newsletter if you want to check it out subscribe to my Substack newsletterhttps://sarahwilson.substack.com/

    DAN BUETTNER: the Blue Zones guy shows us the trick to adding 10 years to our lives

    DAN BUETTNER: the Blue Zones guy shows us the trick to adding 10 years to our lives

    Dan Buettner is a National Geographic Fellow and New York Times-bestselling author. He holds three Guinness records for various ludicrous long bike treks across the planet and he’s also a bone fide explorer who has discovered things about ancient civilizations and, most notably, about cultures where people live the longest, called the Blue Zones.

    Dan and I met when I wrote a blog post about his Blue Zones back shortly after the last ice age (2009) and he chimed in on the comments. We became long-distance friends with many common interests (we’re both in the Guinness Book, we’ve both traversed the globe on our bikes, we love red wine and we are tireless nomads) and he wound up inviting me one of of his Nat Geo explorations in Ikaria in 2012, a wild Greek island not far off the coast of Turkey that has become a second home (some of you might recall the story of my goat herder lover?), and is one of the Blue Zones.

    It was almost 20 years ago that Dan travelled the world to reverse engineer longevity and discover 5 five Blue Zones - pockets of the world with the most centenarians. He then Identified 9 principles or secrets to living long and well. He wrote 5 books and in the lates,t called The Blue Zones Challenge, he outlines a 4-week plan to add 10 years to your life, and the wild idea he puts forward after all this – Friends, Don’t try to change your behaviour with diets and exercise plans, change your surroundings. 

    Which throws much of what we have been told about wellness on its head (I love it!).

    More recently Dan has rolled out his Blue Zones blueprint to cities across the US. Municipalities employ him to “reverse-reverse engineer” the principles into the infrastructure of their cities, which has added years to life expectancy, and produced massive reductions in smoking and health care costs within years.

    ABBIE CHATFIELD: Millennial feminism, a mind blowing introduction.

    ABBIE CHATFIELD: Millennial feminism, a mind blowing introduction.

    Have you heard Abbie Chatfield let rip? You must. The 26-year-old is a reality TV star and vibrator saleswoman with an irreverent podcast (400,000 downloads a month) who will put her boobs, STI treatment plans and beliefs on the public line to make an often controversial and important point, invariably in support of female sexual rights and voice. Oh, and getting vaccinated.

    As a Gen X feminist, I find it a thing to behold. And I’ve been wonderfully challenged by the Peak 2021 Sensation that she is for some time. So many questions, so much to humbly learn from her ability to tread complex nuance, and to brazenly cut to awkward chases. In many ways she takes what feminists of my generation (and older) fought for (and struggled to land) and puts it back on the agenda, front and centre and says...right, deal with it, now, all of you!

    For some reality TV mash-up context: Abbie was a controversial star of the The Bachelor, The Bachelor In Paradise and I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here (which she won).  She’s recently online feuded with a Married at First Sight star (calling them out for supporting rape humour) and a Home and Away star (on their anti-vax stance). She’s just finished gig as host Love Island After Party, about to host Below Deck, done a project for Real Housewives where she sings a duet with comedian Joel Creasey…and has just announced she’s dating a recent Bachelorette contestant. All in three years. She has sold 100,000 of her vibrators since April and is an ambassador to various brands, including Levis, which she models with her cellulite un-airbrushed.

    We talk all of the above, and drill down to what drives her, what it’s like to be a young person wading into "Troll Territory" daily, and ultimately how she feels a responsibility to young women struggling to find their voice in the #metoo era. 

    On air, I challenge her to join the climate movement...we need Abbie Chatfield (feel free to prod her on her socials).
    Her podcast It’s A Lot has charted here in Australia and has 400,000 downloads a month.. A pretty good effort for a show made in her lounge room floor when she’s “red wine drunk” with mates.

Incredible

What an incredible podcast! Sarah has introduced me to several radical thinkers that had my diving into their body of work—especially David Whyte—and being the richer for it. Highly recommended!

Andrew Oregon USA ,

Reality hunger

For those with reality hunger and the appetite for truth

R23ndwp ,

Transphobic host

Sarah Wilson recently took to defending Dave Chappelle’s disastrous and transphobic Netflix special. Transphobia has no place in any activist movement. Sarah has zero credentials to call herself a climate activist but since she thinks she is one then she should support the LGBTTIQQ2SA community.
