Rainn Wilson on "An Idiot's Guide To Climate Change" | Kathy Baughman McLeod on Naming Heat Waves
This week, actor Rainn Wilson joins the show to discuss his new docuseries with SoulPancake, "An Idiot's Guide To Climate Change." We discuss how he became passionate about the climate crisis, what he wanted to explore in the series, and what he and the SoulPancake team hope to accomplish with it.
Then, Kathy Baughman McLeod, Director of the Adrienne Arsht–Rockefeller Foundation Resilience Center at the Atlantic Council, joins to talk about naming heatwaves. She helps us better understand the danger of extreme heat and how to raise awareness on the issue.
Co-hosts Ty Benefiel and Brock Benefiel also discuss Hurricane Laura, updates on the California wildfires, and the New South Wales (NSW) Bushfire Inquiry report, and something about Exxon Mobil and the Dow Jones that Brock didn't entirely understand.
