Welcome to 2022 and Season 4 of the Common Weal Policy Podcast

To start the year, the entire Common Weal team joins Craig on the show to talk about a film we all watched over the winter break. Don't Look Up is a film about a couple of astronomers discovery of an asteroid on collision course with Earth and their attempts to get politicians, the media, the public...anyone! to listen to them and do something about it.
The team discuss the analogy the film draws towards the reaction to climate change and our lack of action to avert it.

Caution, spoilers for Don't Look Up are present from the start of the podcast and continue throughout.

If you would like to read something a little more hopeful, you can buy a copy of our Common Home Plan here.
