Environmental writer, director, and researcher Barbara Clabots tells us about the role gender is playing as climate change effects our communities. She also calls out the use of private prison labor in “sustainable seafood” production. Also, the cohosts discuss how we should respond to an out-of-town, anti-trans (TERF) hate group renting space at SPL’s Seattle Central Library.
