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. 58 – Questionable Inventions – The One-Man Climate Disaster and Period Underwear World Is Burning

This week we’re looking at inventions gone horribly wrong. Olivia tells the story of the “one-man climate disaster,” aka the wildly successful 20th-century inventor Thomas Midgley Jr., whose creations caused widespread lead-induced madness and the near destruction of the ozone layer. Thanks to a bit of showmanship and barely any regulations, his inventions ended up in everyday vehicles and homes for decades after his untimely death. Then, Elise digs into “forever chemicals” in period underwear, the little-known class-action lawsuit against Thinx underwear, and how to advocate for safer products. Other topics include ethical inventing, the lead-crime hypothesis, and what we’re listening to.
