Climate Change Therapy - Ep. 6 - Gabe Gordon

Welcome back to Climate Change Therapy, the podcast where we practice the art of bringing up climate change in casual conversation with our friends. Not because it's fun, like ice cream, but because it's tough, like mutton, and will make us all stronger, and one day, more enlightened. On today's episode (2/2/19), Hank welcomes the young philosopher Gabe Gordon onto the program to open up about his struggles with climate change and his experience as a nascent climate activist, including:
