The Climate Pod

Jun 8, 2022

Bill McKibben needs no introduction. The legendary author, educator, organizer, and activist has spent decades in the climate fight. He is the co-founder of, the first global grassroots climate campaign, and founder of Third Act, a new organization focused on empowering people over 60 to fight for progressive action.

In his latest book The Flag, the Cross, and the Station Wagon: A Graying American Looks Back at His Suburban Boyhood and Wonders What the Hell Happened, McKibben reinvestigates his hometown and learns lessons that apply to his entire generation and the nation. He discusses what he learned, why it matters now, and how to inspire Baby Boomers and older Americans to reclaim the social justice momentum of their youth. He also lends his thoughts on the Biden administration and what he hopes to see with climate action in 2022.
