    John Kasper: A Guy Who Sucked

    John Kasper: A Guy Who Sucked

    Over the years we've talked a lot about the intersection between civil rights and climate change. Now Mary Annaïse Heglar has a novel out (her first!) that lives in that intersection and it's fascinating. On this episode she brings us the story of a guy who fought the desegregation of schools, and why it's important to remember the many ways in which the fight for climate action and the fight for racial justice overlap.

In this episode we get into the nuances of the IRA, how to handle climate being a "culture war" issue, what's going on with anti-renewables, and what the climate movement loses when it turns its back on justice issues and particularly when it turns its back on the Black community.

Zia Padora ,

Great, informative, accessible show!

I only discovered Hot Take shortly before it ended, so I’m thrilled to have a similar podcast back in this feed. Amy’s reporting and her analysis and presentation of other people’s work is excellent and makes me feel less insane. Thanks for everything you do, guys!

Sad the pod is over

Each a powerhouse of intelligence and wit in their own right, together Amy and Mary make a stellar duo. Hot Take is the best way to keep up to date on climate without feeling paralyzed by the problem. Thank you for everything the past few years, and I hope you work together again soon!

Crooked Media do better

The only energy/climate podcast that speaks truth to power.

These women deserve support and a voice. Their message exposes truth no one will talk about.

To crooked media, cancelling the show is easy; keeping it going may be challenging. Rise to the challenge.
