By June 14, 2022 Uncategorized

Kendra Pierre-Louis, a climate reporter and co-host of the Gimlet Media podcast How to Save a Planet, joins us to discuss storytelling in an age of crisis. How can we effectively communicate that better streets, better cities and a better world are possible? How can we point regular citizens toward solutions that can not only fight climate change but improve their day-to-day lives? Plus, what was up with that Kia ad featuring the dude who drives on a beach to save sea turtles?

    Great, happy, uplifting podcast that will help save the world by opening the eyes of one thinking person at a time to possible futures of alternative ways of living and moving in and outside cities that serve humans, not cars. Kendra is an amazing speaker, and a great boon to the WoC.
