Mar 22, 2023

On the new show, Extrapolations, dramatizing the climate crisis isn't just about showing the science unfold. As co-showrunner Dorothy Fortenberry explains on the show this week, making Extrapolations meant telling a wide-ranging, intergenerational story that touches on the politics, economics, technology, culture, and social issues that arise when the world warms. Fortenberry explains the approach the behind the show, how they made it, and what themes were most important to explore. Dorothy Fortenberry is a screenwriter and playwright. She has served as a producer and writer for The Handmaid's Tale. 

Then, Brock goes to SXSW, where he talks to Greg Jackson, CEO of Octopus Energy, about climate tech innovation and what to watch for in 2023.
