This week, I talk about my plan with my husband to stop buying books and DVDs for six months, and what this means for the climate (hint: not much). I talk more generally about deprivation as a source of joy and look into the Unread Shelf Project, which also includes book-buying bans as a way to get reading. And there are shout-outs to BookMooch, Emily Atkin’s HEATED newsletter, the podcast “Drilled: The Mad Men of Climate Change,” and the German-language podcast “Sauercrowded,” which features me as a guest in this month’s episode.
I’m finally back from a long, COVID-lockdown-induced funk. This week I talk about how I reduced my emissions last year and why I’m moving to “Our Climate Diet.” Also, I invite you to join a panel organized by friend of the podcast Franziska Elmer related to Scientist Rebellion.
