Feeling a bit uncomfortable after seeing the word “shame” in the episode title? You’re not alone.
In this episode, we try and work through some difficult emotions as we explore our own shame, guilt, frustration, and anger when it comes to climate action. We also discuss the role wealth plays in climate change, holding yourself accountable, and why it’s hard to make changes despite having so much information.
Can shame and guilt be useful drivers of climate action? Or should we stick with the more moderate approach we normally advocate for? It’s a tough one!
So grab some tea, get comfy, and hit that play button.
