The Climate Pod

Apr 29, 2020

This week, we talk to legendary actor and long-time environmental activist Ted Danson. He tells us what inspired him to advocate for the environment and climate, his work with Oceana, his reflections on the 10-year anniversary of the BP oil spill, what is what like getting arrested protesting climate inaction with Jane Fonda, and much more. He's very cool. 

Ty and Brock also discuss what has changed since the Deepwater Horizon disaster 10 years ago and why the expected drop in emissions this year might surprise you.
