(Recorded on January 15th, 2020) Abbie Richards is an eco-communicator, comedian, and social media icon. She catapulted into online stardom by spearheading the #CancelGolf movement, landing her some mentions on SportsCenter. She then shifted her sights onto conspiracies + the world of disinformation, reaching the masses once again with her conspiracy chart. Outside of all that she is currently pursuing a Masters degree and hopes to find her career lane at the intersection of climate change and disinformation. This was by far the longest podcast I have ever done, also it was one of my favorites.

Isaias Hernandez is the creator of Queer Brown Vegan where he makes accessible environmental education content. As a Queer, Brown, and Vegan environmentalist, he seeks to provide a safe space for other like-minded environmentalists to engage in the discourse of the current climate crisis. On this episode we discussed his journey to doing this work, how veganism, social justice, and environmentalism all intersect and are impacted by white supremacy culture, and how we all can do a better job at speaking to these topics.
