Season 1 Episode 7: What should I expect from politicians? with Gary LewisWe know that one of the - if not the - biggest hang ups to tackling environmental issues is the lack of political will. In this episode, we chat about how the international policy process for environmental regulation works. We look at some of the hold ups and how some of our systems of governance may not be fit-for-purpose. Then we ask what we should expect of our policy makers and what we can do to make them sit up and listen. And act...This is a special episode because it is also with Phoebe's dad, who tells us about how he shifted from seeing the environment as a "nice to have" to a "need to have" issue. Interviewee: Gary Lewis: https://www.unenvironment.org/people/gary-lewis Twitter: @garylewisunInstagram: @badenviropod - Check it out for guilt-free yet questioning stories and photos about the environment. The Bad Environmentalist is presented by Phoebe Lewis and Maria Stacke in their private capacity.

Season 1 Episode 6: What have eco non-profits got wrong? with Cale JaffeWe know what oil lobbyists are doing wrong (a lot!) and also governments, but have environmental non-profit shaped this conversation in a helpful manner? This episode looks at how we in the environmental non-profit/NGO space can improve the likelihood our message will resonate.

Season 1 Episode 4: Why does it not feel dangerous?Despite all the evidence that we might be going to hell in a hand basket, climate and environmental change still does not feel dangerous to us in the way that other issues like war and terrorism do. Why is this? This episode explores the psychological processes behind why this topic is so hard for us to process. We dive into one particular aspect with Prof. Frances Moore: is it that we are just normalising these effects? This episode also reveals the moment with Maria and Phoebe realise that the problems we run into with climate change are surprisingly similar to their love lives. Interviewee: Prof. Frances Moore - https://franmoore.faculty.ucdavis.edu Instagram: @badenviropod - Check it out for guilt-free yet questioning stories and photos about the environment. The Bad Environmentalist is presented by Phoebe Lewis and Maria Stacke in their private capacity.
