Climate change with a feminist solution! Super!

This is a great show with so much to offer. I learn a lot each episode, and it makes me a better citizen of the world. The emphasis on feminist solutions to problems borne of capitalism and colonialism is inspiring. As a male listener in a wealthy, western country, I am humbled and inspired by the stories shared in this pod. We can all do more to help the world, but every little action can help.
Plus, Maeve and Mary's accents are really delightful to listen to.

REQUIRED LISTENING!! 💖

Listening to this absolutely amazing group of ‘Mothers’ is always treat. Surprisingly hilarious! The episode after the 2020 American election made me burst into happy tears just at the sheer audacity of positivity and imagination these inspiring people brought to my anxiety-addled brain. Great for kids too!
