Down The Rabbit Hole Minisode 3: Treaty People Gathering and Line 3

Listen on Spotify / Apple / Anchor / scroll down for our podcast player!


Down the Rabbit Hole is our miniseries dedicated to the deep dives, side trails, and themes that don’t quite fit into our normal episodes.

This weekend Olivia is heading out to the Treaty People Gathering along the Line 3 pipeline route in Northern Minnesota, so we’re explaining the roots of the Indigenous-led non-violent direct action: who are the treaty people? Why stop Enbridge’s Line 3 pipeline? Can Biden really do anything? What can you do from home?

Ep. 66 – Myths, Part 2: The Overpopulation Myth World Is Burning

This week we're going deep on a controversial topic: human population growth. We talk about the roots of the overpopulation myth, the truths we can glean from it, and the scary ways that both eco-fascists and seemingly centrist figures have joined the population conversation. We take a closer look at the ways we talk about consumption and give tips on how to talk to your social circle when they bring up population fears. Because we don't have to live our lives from the scarcity-minded "lifeboat ethics" perspective! But a climate-just future will take work from all of us.
