Communicating Care Podcast & Links

Welcome to Communicating Care, a podcast of the Just Transition Collaborative at the University of Colorado Boulder where we talk about the ways environmental and climate justice advocacy are motivated by, express, and foster care. Publicly launched in 2022, on this podcast, we listen more deeply to people who have made headlines for making a difference to learn from their insights for successful creative climate communication and behavior change.

More Podcasts on plastics, environmental and disability justice, & care

To be clear, I’m just a professor who loves interviewing smart people who practice care. Although I prefer asking questions & listening to others, I’ve been featured on the following podcasts myself:

My plan currently is to record three seasons. Season Two will focus on Dignity & Policy related to plastics, forthcoming January 2023. If funding is available. Season Three will focus on Teaching Beyond Strawmen related themes, including teaching the Global South in the US, plastics, and affect.
