Climate Curious returns for season 2
PRESS RELEASE · London England, UK ·
Launching June 2nd, Climate Curious by TEDxLondon is back for its second season. One of Spotify’s top new shows in 2020 and the UK’s number one Earth Science podcast, this leading London-based climate podcast is injecting fun back into the climate conversation, and most importantly, making it accessible.
We’re launching with ‘Why Mother Nature is a drag queen’ - featuring the world’s most-famous climate drag queen and intersectional climate pioneer, Pattie Gonia. As we enter Pride month, ensuring queer inclusive climate spaces are a part of the conversation is essential. As Pattie says, “I think we just need to think about really making an outdoors that truly is for all.”
Elsewhere this season, we’re talking about why food apartheid is a climate justice issue, how insects might help us adapt to a changing climate and what movements like Black Lives Matter and Extinction Rebellion have in common. With intersectional climate leaders campaigning for greater diversity and representation within the climate debate – including Pattie Gonia, Kumi Naidoo, Angela Francis and Christina Hicks.
TEDxLondon believes that the climate conversation needs to be more inclusive, and more engaging in order to save the planet. It’s putting a cities-focussed, intersectional, problem-solving lens on the global crisis – for climate normies – people who want to be a part of the climate conversation, but are struggling to find their space in it.
If you care about the world, but find the current conversation about climate change confusing, scary or boring, then this might be the podcast for you. Join TEDxLondon as we lift the lid on the climate emergency. Find out why cities are key to the climate fight, why we need to tackle systemic problems (and not just plastic straws), and why we’re all a bit crap at sustainability. Hear from hosts Maryam Pasha and Ben Hurst as they scout the earth for intersectional solutions, meet the cities that are leading the way, find out why the next 10 years are so important, indulge in our speakers’ climate confessions, and ask – episode by episode – why climate? Why should we care? And what can we do? Warning – this is not just another climate podcast. It’s for people who want to care and are curious, but need a little helping hand to find that motivation. Climate Curious is a UK number 1 Earth Science podcast, featured by Spotify on its top UK podcasts playlist, and a US top 10 Earth Science podcast. This podcast is produced by TEDxLondon and made possible by the generous support of our Headline Partner, Citi.
