Episode 9: Make Climate Action Easy: Have a Pool Party!

Everybody in the Pool

12-07-2023 • 31 minutos

This week on Everybody in the Pool, it’s playtime. Obviously, global warming and the climate crisis are intimidating topics. But this week’s guest has built an entire career out of play. Jenny Gottstein is a game-maker, previously of Go Games and IDEO, and a few years ago, she created a game called Beat! That! Heat!, a climate action game show. Molly and Jenny talk about how play can create an accessible conversation that celebrates climate action no matter where you start, offers an onramp to the conversation for people who are curious but embarrassed, and did I mention that making games for a living is an actual job? This week’s episode is sponsored by Fennel Markets.
