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. 43 – Carbon Footprints and Treehuggers – Climate Language World Is Burning

Did the fossil fuel industry really invent the carbon footprint? Did you know that the first "treehugger" came waaaay before the 1960s hippie, and took a much greater risk? This week we're talking about the language of climate change, specifically the carbon footprint and the term "treehugger." Olivia digs into the real story behind the corporate world's favorite unit of measurement, and whether it has any value in conversations today. Then Elise tells the story of the Bishnoi people and how the "treehugger" legacy echoes the stories of climate justice activists today.
