This is our very first “atypical” episode. It’s gonna sound a little different than what we usually share, and we probably won’t do these too often, but hey, variety is the spice of life. So, first on this episode, we read a statement on racial justice. We’ve done a lot of reading and thinking over the past several weeks and wanted to acknowledge the fact that we have failed in a number of ways when it comes to racial justice. Our self-awareness and anti-racism have fallen short, and we’re coming to recognize the inherent shortcomings of a show hosted by two white, privileged men. We hope you’ll continue listening and growing along with us.
We then break down our favorite sustainability articles over the past few months. Jay even gives a couple video suggestions (Trevor Noah and Matthew McConaughey are involved in these).
Last, we play some voicemails that listeners left us where they explain who they are, what they heard on the show, and what action they have taken based on what they heard. This episode may be atypical, but we hope it has the trademark results of A) learning information that surprises/inspires you and B) shaking your head while laughing at bad jokes.
