Why Do We Need A Green New Deal? with Senator Ed Markey
Play episode · 47 min

This week on Getting Curious, Jonathan is learning about the power of clean energy with a clean energy powerhouse: Massachusetts representative and co-author of the Green New Deal bill, Senator Ed Markey. Senator Markey explains what a Green New Deal can offer in the way of environmental protections, job opportunities, pandemic recovery, and more.

 

Senator Markey is also running for re-election in the upcoming Massachusetts primary, and he and Jonathan discuss his four decades as a progressive leader, what the stakes are for his keeping his seat (they're JVN endorsement-level major!), and how he's planning to turn out the vote on September 1.

Phoebe, Ijeoma Olou, & Phil Robinson Are Doing Their Best
It's crunch time, boos! The 2020 election is coming up. Many of us are scared and stressed and I called on two of the smartest people I know to talk about the issues of the day. Yep, that's right! We have another super sized episode of Black Frasier! So make some popcorn and Lipton iced tea and dig in. First up! Phil and Phoebe break down what exactly he does as a local politician, his career in the non-profit space and, of course, they give each other a hard time because that's what siblings do. Next, Phoebe chats with Ijeoma about local politics in Seattle, defunding the police, and as per usual, she gives us some tools on how to show up more intentionally in our communities. Plus, both Phil and Ijeoma answer some top notch listener questions.  Ijeoma Oluo Details: Twitter/Instagram: @IjeomaOluo Preorder Ijeoma's upcoming book MEDIOCRE: THE DANGEROUS LEGACY OF WHITE MEN : https://bit.ly/3dDteAg State Rep Phil Robinson's Details: Instagram/Twitter: @robinsonforoh Website: https://bit.ly/3ofjdhJ   -- Black Owned Business: Melanin Haircare WEBSITE : https://bit.ly/2IMG9ob INSTAGRAM: https://bit.ly/2IGiBRD TWITTIER: https://bit.ly/3dE9wo1 FACEBOOK: https://bit.ly/3jdh9D1 PINTEREST: https://bit.ly/3jgpgi2 -- SUBSCRIBE to get the latest Black Frasier Episodes: YouTube: https://bit.ly/33yXkBX Apple Podcasts: https://apple.co/3a787Vd Spotify: https://spoti.fi/33FG1PA Google Podcasts: https://bit.ly/33B9Gt9 Stitcher: https://bit.ly/2F241SS iHeart: https://ihr.fm/3kkY8Ah Pandora: https://pdora.co/31z7Ru6 Deezer: https://bit.ly/3gFwpYN Connect with Phoebe Online at: Visit the Phoebe Robinson WEBSITE: https://bit.ly/3kxHrlo Like Phoebe Robinson FACEBOOK: https://bit.ly/3fCjnKg Follow @PhoebeRobinson on TWITTER: https://bit.ly/33DParN Follow Phoebe Robinson on INSTAGRAM: https://bit.ly/3a5xVAT Follow Black Frasier on INSTAGRAM: https://bit.ly/31pKiUC -- About Black Frasier: BLACK FRASIER. It is - SURPRISE! - an interview-advice hybrid show hosted by a black person (ahem, me: Pheebs!) who has never seen an episode of FRASIER despite having a white boyfriend. #WeAllContainMultitudes. Moving on. Since I’m known amongst friends to dole out solicited (and unsolicited) life advice, I wanna spend each week - with a celeb guest - helping y’all handle your probs. #OliviaPope #MoreLikeOliviaDope #MomJoke. ANYWAY, the world is a continuous dumpster fire and the goal of this poddie is to make you laugh, think, and feel hopeful for our future.
