Errata:
Covelli? I meant Rovelli. And he is not an astrophysicist. He is a theoretical physicist.

In this episode I talk with long-time friend and pod-colleague Madge Weinstein, of Yeast Radio, who happens to be my cousin about 30 times removed.   After all,  we are both descended from the same 350 people that may have originated from the middle east and settled in eastern Europe around the fourteenth century.

Skolstrejk for Klimatet

School Strike for Climate

 

On Friday, September 27, 2019, Special K and I participated in the Climate Strike.   We headed down to Queen’s Park, home of the Ontario legislature, to take part in the rally and march.    I spoke to a number of interesting people about their thoughts on the Climate Crisis.   Jagmeet Singh, leader of the nation’s New Democratic Party (NDP),  calls it the Climate Crisis and I think it is apt.  If we don’t take action, I am not sure what the future holds.   In this episode we debrief on the strike and I share audio of the people I interviewed or otherwise talked with.   Enjoy.
