The Climate Pod

Jan 27, 2021

This week, Amanda Litman, executive director of Run For Something, joins the show to talk about why running for local office matters greatly to climate issues and how you can get involved now. We discuss the importance of electoral politics in climate action and what the new generation of activists might mean for the movement.

Co-hosts Ty Benefiel and Brock Benefiel also discuss how democracy and climate action are inextricably linked.
