Season 1 Bonus Episode: The Price of the Ecuadorian Chernobyl

In this special bonus episode, we revisit an issue we explored in the first episode of the season and talk with Nobel Peace Laureate Jody Williams about her work to engage with Chevron at its 2020 annual shareholder meeting, using her activist shareholder voice to urge for Chevron shareholders to be able to call special meetings to discuss significant issues affecting shareholder value.  In this case, it happens to be the over $3 billion the company has spent evading is over $9 billion obligation for its role in perpetrating what is described as the Ecuadorian Chernobyl and going after the human rights lawyer, Steven Donziger, who was brave enough to take on the case.
